I made this table last spring for cookouts on the deck. I used 7/8” cypress decking I had left over from the deck construction. Joinery was all mortise & tenon. I stained to match the deck, and then applied 3 topcoats of Sikkens marine varnish.

Good use of the decking. You put a real nice finish on the cypress too. Now ….. Wheres the beer?

Greetings from the socialist capital of America – California.
Why do you think they call it the ’left coast’?

Great project. How has the Sikkens Marine varnish held up?

The Sikkens has held up very well. It is some tough stuff.

Eddie-

That is a wall that seperates the deck from the steps to the upper deck level. I have some pictures and will post the deck project tomorrow.
