Outdoor Oak Dining table

First off, the oak was milled into 3 inch thick boards and 3 meters long then some of the planks were then converted into 5x3 rails. It was a really awesome piece of oak with nice streaks of dark brown, pink and blue from a piece of metal inside the tree which I somehow managed the miss with the saw!









When it came to building the table I used a combination of bridle joints, lap joints and stainless steel bolts to hold it together. This combination makes for a very solid table - Which it needed to be as the two planks that formed the table top took 4 people to lift!

It was a great project to build and I'm pretty sure it will outlive me...
