Well another summer project is checked off the list.
My first table was made of redwood wth 120 mortise and tenons for the slats on the table top.
While doing the dry fit, a gust of wind threw the top in the air destroying the shoulders on the mortises
So, this one is made of Douglas Fir wth some General finish gel stain & GF outdoor oil
The aprons and center supports are mortise & tenon, I opted to use pocket screws to attach the top, in case a board needs replacement
The good thing about doing all those M&T is my joints are tight, just another lesson in the wood shop
