« Part 3: Marble Trestle Table for Grilling Part 4 of This Week In the Shop series Part 5: End of Summer Program »

This week in the shop, I got the chance to use up a few of the pine boards laying in the woodpile. My son got a picnic table out of the deal. The table is 24″ L, 11″ W & about 11″ H. You can catch a few other projects at

The table:

The chair (the rails are too close together):

The result as he knows it:

A side shot of the chair. It’s a little skinny:

I attached the top with a few screws. You can deduce the construction of the side with this shot.

Make it safe & keep the rubber side down this weekend. I’ll be back next week with some year-in-review posts and hopefully, a picture or two of some wood drums I’m currently building.

Nice table and chair for the young bloke. Great use of boards from the pile.
