Outdoor Dining: Phase #1

We have had our deck for 4 years now. We love being outside and enjoying our gorgeous backyard. However, we do not have an outdoor dining table…until this weekend. We have spent the last 4 years going back and forth on what we want, how big, what it is made of, color and on and on and on…..We looked at buying a set but nothing was perfect for us. So after much deliberation about the look of it and designing a table Jason has begun building it. I am so excited. It is beautiful and it is not completed yet.

I love big, strong furniture that has a bold presence in its space. Our table fits that bill. It will not be something we will move once it is in place. In fact when it is time for J to attach top and bottom together it will be done in its permenant location on our deck.

Of course, I have captured the progress in photos.

These are the shavings after running the boards through the surface planer. The table is made out of cedar. We thought we might package all the shavings and sell to pet stores. 🙂

Isn’t it beautiful? J has to add the biscuits, glue and then he is going to and a trim around the top before we can attach the legs and top together. It is a 5′ ft x 10 ft table that will seat 12 people. I cannot wait to entertain friends and family and enjoy the beautiful table hubbie is building for us!
