Cedar table

I had an attorney friend that wanted a specific sized table for her deck. This is what I came up with. All of the lumber was from old posts/boards that I salvaged and cleaned up. They cleaned up pretty well. Got a nice little commission off this piece. She chose to leave the table natural to allow it to weather to match her other deck furniture. Thought that a shame I think it’s pretty like this.

Nice. Real nice. I have a bunch of cedar from when I replaced my deck. I may ‘borrow’ your design.

I like it. The wood cleaned up really well and I agree, it looks too nice to let weather.

Nice table Betsy. I’m with you on the finish but to each his own.

I like this a lot, Betsy. As a matter of fact, I have just added it to my “must do one of these” list.

Very nice work Betsy. The natural look allways goes down well.
