Deck furniture made from Merante. I made three tables as pictured ( approximately 2’x2’) and two 4’ long and eight deck chairs. All the joinery is mortice and tenon glued with Titebond lll and oiled with BLO although now they are mostly weathered grey. They are a few years old now and other than the weathered look, they are holding up well and are in new condition. Merante is great for outdoor projects. I copied a chair my son had on his deck which I took back to my shop to repair and decided to make a few of my own. The tables are constructed so they can double as benches for extra seating.
