They look great
Maybe your wife could whip up a couple of weatherproof covers to throw over the tables when they're not being used(?).Thank you all so much for looking and for the kind remarks.
Yes Mike, I used red oak because that's what I had, I applied 6 coats of MinWax Spar Varnish, so I think they will be okay for the season.
Ann Marie has plans on using the tables inside for Christmas decorations so they will be out of the elements.
