88” x 36” Ipe 5/4” x 6” decking held together with a pair of battens and bronze machine screws. The finish is “Australian Timber Oil” from Lowes left outside for a couple months to weather and cure. It floats on a copper base made from 1 1/2” plumbing tubing with a natural patina. It’s now parked inside in use as my computer desk.

That’s great, a wonderful table that should last for a long long time.
