Here is a little side table I made as a companion piece to my recently finished garden bench.

It’s made from reclaimed Oregon (Douglas Fir) and reclaimed Jarrah. Breadboard ends on the table top, screwed with elongated holes to allow for expansion and contraction – I plugged the screw holes. I added a cloud lift to the apron as well as Jarrah plugs and foot details inspired by Greene & Greene and consistent with the bench it sits next to. Finished with 2 coats of decking oil as well as Carnauba Wax on the table top – for extra protection.

I was quite happy with this piece and how quickly it came together, I might start on indoor furniture soon.

Nice piece. Looks very clean. I like the contrasting wood.

Nice, substantial intrepretation of G&G furniture for the outdoors. I like the leg detail, cloud lifts and square plugs—am I missing any element? Thanks for posting.

It looks great, so great it had to be chained down!

That is an exceptional craftsmanship.
