Here is a picnic table I built for a friend to go on his patio. I used pine. And a clear coat finish. It takes a bit of time to build one but I am happy with how it turned out. I like the eight person seating design it is pretty comfortable.

Very nicely done.

Is it your own design?

I saw metal folding saw horses in one of the pictures.
I have 4 of those EBBO metal folding saw horses and use them a lot, have for several years already.

Very nice. I’ve always disliked the traditional picnic table, very uncomfortable. With a back and the table legs away from your own legs it looks much more comfortable. Good work!!
