This project was made from various pieces of oak left over from a job. All the timber was machined already. I have access to very few machines so i decided to design something which just required cutting the stock to size and jointing. I used a domino cutter to join everything with great results. I used Gorilla glue which gave rock solid results and piece of mind as it is intended for outdoor use. Bog Oak was used to dress up the miters and inside edges. The bench in the picture was an extra project to use up the last of the timber i had. I also used Bog Oak on the legs to match it to the table. I finished it with three coats of Sikkens outdoor coating. Parts of this projects could have been better but i think it turned out pretty good and the lumber cost $0 : )

The close up of the miter contains distortion. Sorry about the poor photography
