I finally got a new comission from some very kind people.
They wanted a small table for outside.
It’s made from yellow pine ( the lower part ) and the top from regular pine.
I made it deconstructable aswell, as suggested by the customer :).
4 long bolts need to be tightend to attach the frame, and the top is jammed by itself between the legs
when it’s put on the frame. I also used wooden pegs and glue for extra joint strength.
It’s finished with outdoor transparent alkyd laquer.

thanks for watching!

Nice table, Although to be honest, wouldn’t cedar be a better choice?

I love it. It is a very nice design and the break down feature is a bonus.

You did a great job on this. It is as sturdy as it is beautiful, I’m sure !

thanks for the comments!

i used wood that was already in the shop.
Cedar would have been nice, but also alot pricier :)

the top goes in from above, its stuck between the legs.
The weight of it keeps it there, i hope i wont give them a hernia :(
