First patio table

This is one of the two patio tables that are currently under construction for porches..... While I was happy with the way it turned out, man I wish my circle cutting jig had worked :(

Love some constructive criticism!

Can't find much to be critical about. I like the design and the differences in the woods is appealing.

Did you use Purpleheart for the legs, or it is the photo?

Well done, I like it.

Thanks for the kind words!

The entire table is cedar -- although it does look a lot like purpleheart doesn't it?

My only dislike really at this point is how sticky it is. Is that normal for a clear deck sealer? What would you guys finish it with if to avoid that?

Thanks again for all your help towards my amateur questions! ;-)

If you used a brush on deck varnish it can take several days for the "sticky" feeling to go away, but it will stand up better to life in the great outdoors.

This is just different enough to not be just another patio table... I like it alot.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

Personally, I like the shape better than a boring 'ole circle. And the color variations of the slats really adds character to it. I like it quite a lot.

The table looks very custom, with the shape and colors. What deck sealer did you use?

Sorry for the delay CM -- I finished with Preserva Wood that I found at Lowes. It claims to work after only one coat, but I noticed a few areas that I wasn't confident in so I ended up doing 3. Too much?

Really it is so hard to find good-looking patio furniture. The table is awesome and these are truly beautiful patio sets.

Looks Great !!!

I like it. !!!!

I work with cedar when I can. I sawed and planed and jointed some home grown cedar harvest from family property. Normally get used for fence posts but my brother and I turned a couple into a real nice humidor.

I did not think at the time to take pics of the process. Turned out nice.

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???
