This project for my in-laws has taken up some serious hours. I did the design in Fusion360.
Lowrider did the rest (with its usual aplomb).
The final table-top is supposed to be a 14’ length of live spalted maple. Unfortunately, it is in quarantine in Brooklyn for the foreseeable future! Base is 93 inches long.
The struts of the benches are clear cedar. Benches are 6’.
Finished everything with Osmo PolyX and a mixture of titanium white pigment from Kremer to mute any discoloration. I wanted a provisional wood shop look. For those who want to avoid dastardly suburban polyurethane/lacquer finishes – I strongly recommend Osmo – a beautiful penetrating oil wax concoction that is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Perfect for young ages…
