I made a picnic table for my 2 boys using 8 1/2 – 2×4’s, a miter saw, a drill, and some deck screws. It is 24” tall, 40” wide, and 44” long. I built it in about 3 hours and then left it assembled for 2 weeks to let the wood dry. I sanded the whole thing with 60 grit sandpaper in a random orbit sander. I removed the top and seats and gave them 2 coats of fence stain. I put 1 coat of stain on the frame.
