Reader Showcase: Provence Beam Dining Table and Benches

I was inspired by the RH Provence 4×4 Beam plans, but wanted to try to make it more aesthetically accurate by using all beams for the base.  I made two tables (10′ and 8′) and two 8′ benches.  I’m thinking about making chairs for the 10′.  Also, I’ve never used a Kreg jig, so I put it together with GRK structural screws and normal screws.
