this cedar tressle table was made from the decking of my inlaws back portch. they renovated and i collected the trash. i made this table for some close friends whom had just purchased their first house. it was made 3/4 size to serve as an outdoor bbq-prep/serving table for their patio. they loved it so much im still trying to talk them into putting it outside, maybe this summer.

Nice use of reclaimed wood. I agree. Too nice to put outside.

Beautiful job. I can see why they hesitate to put it outside.

Very nice. Next time I redo one of my neighbor’s cedar deck, I’ll have to save the lumber and re-use it. Great idea.
