This is sort of "technique" related. I ordered a cypress table on eBay from "bge_tables4less"; $250 + $60 shipping. The factory tables are about $600. Today I unpacked it and assembled it, and WOW. If ever a product exceeded my expectations, this one did. Assembly took about 45 minutes, with me taking my time; I'm sure I could have knocked it off in half an hour. He still has small tables; $200 + shipping.
It came as 4 pieces with hardware. Notice the beveled edges and the heavy bracing:
Fully assembled. THE REASON THE DECK LOOKS LIKE CRAP IS BECAUSE WE'RE TEARING IT DOWN AND REPLACING IT! So back off.
