This is a scaled down version of a project I found in Fine Woodworking magazine. I used recycled pine to make sure the proportions were good. I intend to make another out of cedar now that I’m satisfied with the scale and I’ve practiced the techniques of routing and fitting the 12 sections together using splines and glue. The table diameter is 3’ and sits 30” high. Since it was pine, I finished with a good primer and exterior enamel. The cedar version will not be painted; I may stain it or leave it natural.
There is a notch visible in the 4th picture that is needed to slide all the top boards into the rabbet. The 2 cleats secure the center board in place.
