This was my first attempt at building a piece of furniture. It's an outdoor table based on the providence table plans. I used old 4x4 pressure treated posts from part of my fence that was no longer needed for the base. The posts were fit together using lap joints and secured using fastenlok screws. The base was then painted with french grey chalk paint (first time experimenting with chalk paint) and then covered with a thin coat of brown briwax.
The top is made of 8 foot by 1 inch ipe boards that are 4 different widths but the overall width is about 42 inches. The ipe was purchased rough sawn and needed to be planed to uniform thickness. I used a natural stain meant specifically for ipe and other tropical hardwoods.
