With fantastic help from Ry and her amazing site, I was able to reproduce this fantastic provence beam table! I am inspired to do the Chelsea chaise loungers next! This is my second woodworking project, and could not have done it without Ry’s help along the way. Thank you Ry!
I made the 8′ version, using reclaimed cedar 4×4 posts, 2×10 planks and redwood 2x4s. It was a truly great experience picking the lumber at the salvage yard, loading it myself, sanding, cutting, attaching, even making little mistakes along the way so I know what NOT to do next time is something I will never forget.
I did my trusses at a 45 degree angle, and drilled an umbrella hole and could not have been more pleased. AND thank you again Ry, your site made it all possible. You serve as a great inspiration!
