An end table for the Deck

The fellow that owned the sawmill where I used to go and pick up slabs and free lumber, gave me some Redwood and asked me to make him an end table for his deck to go with his Adirondack chair.

Looks good, and no hardware in sight! Making something like that with joinery only is definitely on my bucket list.

This was made from 14"+ wide boards and they were starting to cup so I split them down the middle, and assembled them so that the grain continuity still was maintained. The top has thru tenons w/a thin wedge to tighten them and the tressel has the same with a knock-out wedge to tighten it up. If you look closely the cleats on the legs are glued and screwed, w/ plugs to cover the screw heads.
