Hi, just wanted to show off my first completed project. I wanted to build a big table that would withstand being outside for a while. A good talking pieces and something practical for bar-be-ques and socializing.

Got given some chunky wood. Was pretty rough when I got it, but sanded it down smooth. Cut the space for the end-on cross-cut logs. Cleaned everything up and glued it all together with resin.

The sanding really took the longest amount of time, but I am pretty pleased with the result.

I'm hoping the pine color will age a little, being outside for most of the time. It's ok, but maybe a little less yellowy-orange, but hey, free is my favorite color, right.

Would be cool to see other people's projects. I'm interested to really see how long it is going to last. It's very heavy, really needs two people to move and my daughter loves dancing on it. So it's getting wear and tear from all angles.

Thanks again.

Will be interesting to see what the sun does to the resin. Maybe do a follow up in a year or so. What brand of resin did you use?

Yes, also if you are using it for cooking outside, I'd watch out for putting anything hot on top of it.
