Outdoor Table Top Redo

I previously submitted an outdoor table that was great for all of a few months. Apparently I didn't plan for wood movement and it destroyed itself. I rebuilt the top with cheap cedar fence slats and a better design. It looks better than the first and more importantly it is holding up!

Very handsome. Im curious as to why you used fence wood instead of thicker cedar planks?

Thanks! There were a few reasons. They are cheap, light and worked with the design. After having the first failed attempt at a top i wanted something I could space yet still make sturdy. These were thin enough that I could make the criss cross pattern that I thought would allow for board movement yet make it solid when having 2 layers. The only downfall is they took a lot of sanding. The ryobi belt sander made it pretty painless though.
