Much better! That poly glue looked like someone spilled the mayonnaise.

Yeah, and it didn't filled the whole gap in places, so it needed to go

Ok, but inquiring minds would want to know, why?
A project that you don't want to make, start, buy?
Then definitely don't let her see it after I add more coats of Epifane Varnish.

She will be so impressed with your table it will spur her to go out to garage sales, flee markets ect. and find "projects" for me. Wood working is suppose to be about me doing my projects not me doing her projects.

Now if I run into a project along your lines I can follow in your footsteps and look like a hero...

There's a very good article in the current FWW (May/June 2013) about what kind of woods are best for outdoors. Hank Gilpin is the author and prefers to use no finish on the outdoor projects he makes. He's pictured sitting in a chair that looks 1000 times worse that what your table looked like when you started. I'm with you I power wash my furniture then sand and seal every year or two.
I saw that article when it came out. Hank DOES prefer to leave the wood natural, he's said this more than once, and the picture really proves it, doesn't it.
But, I'm with you. I need a softer look and feel to my outdoor furniture.
And some clear film to keep the birds from adding their graffiti
I would STILL like to work with Black Locust, but I never see any locally at yards or stores.
White Oak is readily available, but heavy when the project is large. Not an easy wood to carry in and out for seasonal storage if the piece is large.
