    Just wanted to share this with the group.

    Finished this up this week, build in 1/4 sawn African Padauk in the parson's style.

    Still debating the chairs for this table, but so far I like the look of this Emeco navy chair. The outdoor area has finally started to make a nice progression, IMO.

    I'm waiting for snobs to hate on my weber, siding, planters ect, but Rome wasn't built in a day.

    Table looks pretty sweet to me. Nice, simple lines.

    Thanks guys! I'm looking forward to see how the padauk holds up outdoors, it's common for use on boats, so I think it'll do well. Finished it in waterlox.

    Nice table! If your patio gets very wet, you might think about putting some kind of chair glides or something on the bottoms of the legs -just so the legs don't soak up water through the end grain. I've seen a lot of solid-wood outdoor furniture that had the legs rot at the bottom because of that. You may have enough Waterlox on the end grain to keep any water from penetrating- but over time, just to be on the safe side, I would get it off the ground a little bit.

    You make a good point, I may put some stainless steel glides on it. I haven't been worried about it because the patio dries very quickly.

    Very nice work! Would love to see some more pictures, and the navy chairs are a good choice. I've used them on a few similar projects. If you've got more of the same wood, a bench in the same style could be nice to set under the windows, and then could be used to convert the table from 4 to 6 (or 6 to 8) when the need arises.

    Thanks! Great idea as well, two short stools that look like a bench and can convert the seating into 6 would be great. I'm contemplating the other side of this area as well, i may build outdoor lounge chairs for it, in a different wood. Maybe purple heart wood or teak.
