    A bunch of fine fellers from Houston. You got pics of before you trimmed it?

    Take Coop out of the equation and I feel for the rest of your friends😀 Beans and rice and rice and beans here! 😀
  3. I just caught on due to Kev mentioning the new door. I was about to ask if there was more than one Chet as a Mod!
  4. No sir. Just measured the gas meter to make sure it cleared, left to right and front to back. It is so close to the patio that the center portion can also be used as a table to hold a pitcher of tea and glasses if needed. Not the intent but afterthought.

    Yep! Unless he has rich friends!
  6. Well it’s finally finished. The center portion fits over and hides the gas meter. Slats are western red cedar and the frame is cypress. Finished with Penofin and all joints were connected with Dominos and epoxy was used at Kev’s suggestion. Tops frames are half lap. Just out of curiosity, I counted the pieces and there 112 and 224 Dominos. Damn sure a record for me!

    Where the heck you been bro? I’m like @Bmac, and will take any of the afore mentioned woods that he doesn’t need! Glad to hear from ya!
  8. As long as we are all undecided, I feel safe in calling anything that does not attach to the top and legs anything I want and not get challenged. Actually, I was thinking that a stretcher is and not exclusive to, similar to a board that connects table legs on one end of a table to the other, down the middle, as in a farm house table. The grooves, dadoes and rabbets definitions are a lot better defined!
  9. Very well done Chet. I agree with Bryan!
  10. Thanks Kev! That about sums it up, 👍👍👍
  11. When does one become another? I know the horizontal board directly below the top, connecting the legs is called an apron. And say this piece is an end table with a panel on three sides a a drawer on the front, is the horizontal piece below the panel also an apron? And 3” above the floor, also running the perimeter of the table is another smaller piece. Is this a stretcher?
  12. And then one of the syndicated home improvement shows strips the paint and reveals your name, well after we can appreciate it.
  13. Where a wet rag will clean up Titebond type glues, isn’t there a solvent such as mineral spirits or lacquer thinner that can be used for epoxy? I used epoxy on my bathroom door construction but be darned if I remember what I used. I attribute this to climate change and not old age.😀
  14. This thing will have close to 40-50 pieces, all joined together with the Domino. I am going to take your advice Kev and use epoxy for the glue up, for moisture protection and extended work time. The horizontal surfaces will be slats and there are several aprons and stretchers. Far more complicated than it should be! I would like to give a generous but not excessive coating of epoxy to the ends of each of these boards, or maybe that’s an overkill? What is the best way to clean up the squeeze out? I will be using Penofin penetrating oil finish. And yes, I just recently saw a video on outdoor fi
  15. Very well done Chet. Clean simple lines with a touch of elegance. The pulls are a perfect choice!
