Project Information

This past summer I made this picnic table that would easily sit 8 people without having to climb over the seating benches. It's made of clean 2×6 lumber non-PT except for the 4 bottom bases that will sit on the ground. It's pretty heavy and not easy to mover around, but very stable.

Very nice. I bet that thing is a beast to move! I hate climbing over the bench at a picnic table.

Nice work, pretty interesting layout. Very suitable for plying cards (4 persons).

My wife has asked for me to make a table like this. I told her i could pre-cut the pieces this winter then assemble it in the spring. She looked at me with a puzzled look, why not build it all at once? Because it would be a permanent piece in the shop! The only way in and out of the shop is a short man door.

Yellowirenut, that's exactly what I did. Pre-cut all the parts in my shop, then assembled the table in the garage. It all worked out just fine.

Also made one of these years ago… Still waiting for the grass to grow under it in my workshop… maybe I should water the concrete

Nice job Woodchips38+1.
