The wife wanted a nice table for our covered deck. The legs and apron are maple, started out to be natural, but ended up sprayed with white enamel. The top is some cherry that was rejected for indoor projects.

Pretty nice table, and some sweet cherry. Why was it rejected?, looks like some really nice stuff.

Great looking table, and will be wonderful location for dinners. What did you use for a finish? I have a table for the screened porch on my “honeydolist”, but have not decided on the best choice of finish.

The finish was 3 coats of spar. Mixed semi-gloss and satin 50/50. Spar can withstand most expansion and contraction. Equal number of coats on the underside to help prevent warping.

The cherry was rejected for other projects due to some very fine cracks that did not extend all the way through – fine for this.
