Family Table

My wife and I decided to get married at our family cottage, I decided as a gift for my parents for allowing us to use the cottage.
The project came about from my imagination, I decided I was going to build them a custom exterior table for at the lake, engraving the lakes outline along with family name on the table.
There were many challenges I encountered with this project, it being my first go round with something as complicated as this. I was missing a fair amount of tools for the project, as well as the experience to do it. Tools were acquired, some purchased others borrowed from family and friends.
Also was my first time joining together multiple pieces of lumber to make a large slab. Also engraving the lake was a new experience and was a rather pleasant one to behold upon completion.
I was pleasantly surprised with the simplicity of it when you break it down into specific sections, taking time to complete each portion.
The table is loved and envied by both family and friends. I am very happy with the final product as is everyone who sees it.
