Restored deck table

The top of this old deck table was too far gone, so I made a new one from pear planks, and coated it with three layers of lineseed oil and four layers of Epifanes boat varnish. I managed to save the original frame, except for some rotten spots which I refitted with new pieces of mahogany.
