I just wanted to send you a couple of photos from my "rustic chic"
garden table project which is now finished.
I found it heavy going moving the wood around the back yard. Cutting the mortise
and tenon joints in new french oak for the legs and cross bracing took some
time, as did fitting the rebates in the sleepers to match . . . but I think
that the result was worth the effort. I think that my lack of precision can
be excused if the product is supposed to be 'rustic chic'! The table measures
about 2.1m by 1m . . . and weighs in at about 250kg. Designed to seat 8-10
pretty comfortably. It ain't moving.
I'm looking forward to having mates around to enjoy bbq food on the table
come spring. Next project: bench seats for the table - I will be in touch.
All the best and thanks for your help with the sleepers.
A sturdy, solid and well crafted creation that will out last many bbq's with
riotous friends !
