Great wood, great table and benches, and I love the pictures with the cypress/bayou in the background. The finish is perfect as well. ie Ya dun good all around!

Looks like you are all set for a bit pot of crawfish..some panaed catfish….or some deep fried turkey. I miss living down there in “gods country”....but work was here in CA land….but I do get the benefit of low humidity in the summer ….Your pics with the bayou behind did make me homesick. Keep up the great work….love that cypress.

Nice work on the table and benches, Joey. I really like the breadboard edge on the table. I am guessing that most of the joinery is mortise and tenon, maybe pinned or draw bored? I really like working in cypress too. BTW, I am not too far from you—I’m near Lafayette.
