Customer was looking for a large outdoor dining table and benches for family gatherings. The table is 10 feet long by almost 3 1/2 feet wide. The matching benches are 7 feet long and provide seating for 8. With added chairs on the ends the table will comfortably seat 10 people. For this project we used ipe wood, a very dense Brazilian hardwood that is extremely rot resistant. All of the joinery of the table and bench bases are through-mortises, which provide strength, along with added design details. The finish is simply a coat of oil, which brings out the rich colors of the wood.
