I made this for my parents backyard patio, they plan to put 2 cedar rocking chairs next to the table.

Nate, go look in my workshop and you’ll see the jointer I used. It’s a Ridgid 6” I bought off Craigslist, and I calibrated it by “eye” since I didn’t have the correct tools to correctly set it up. Run’s great and I highly recommend it!

Nice table. What finish did you put on it?

My parents took it back to Dallas unfinshed, I think they put mineral oil on it the other day and my mom distressed it with paint and some inks. Came out pretty well

That looks really good… I need to build some cedar patio furniture for the house so we can use our back yard…
