This was one of my first projects and may have been a little ambitious at the time, but hey, if you don’t push yourself I guess you’ll never learn. Made from Western Cedar, finished with helmsman spar urethane exterior grade. I won’t use a film forming finish like that again; it peeled badly wherever the UV rays hit it after a year. The loose tenon joints around the top weren’t as tight as they should have been. On the other hand I loved working with the cedar. It was quality stuff (better than the Eastern Cedar which I can get locally) in my opinion. This wood smells great too! Another advantage was how light that table was to move around at the end of BBQ season.
Table has since been passed along to my F-I-L who sanded and refinished it.
