This table is cypress and for outdoor use. The legs were pickets from the porch of my great grandfather’s house in Mobile, Alabama. The house, built in 1852, was called Summerdale, hence the name of the table. The house is no more… I turned the bottoms round and removed the old ‘milk paint’, which was the hardest and most time consuming part of the whole project. Finished the whole thing with Watco Exterior Oil. Spar varnish over that on the top only.
