  1. Small Picnic Table

    My mother-in-law wanted a picnic table for her backyard, the only spec. she gave me was that she wanted it to be smaller (not as long) as a standard picnic table. This is about 5 feet long.

  2. Trestle Picnic Table and Benches

    Built from rough sawn 8/4 cedar. This was my first time milling all the wood for a large project. My shop, my house, and my deck all smell absolutely wonderful! Every piece went through the jointer, planer, and drum sander before cutting. All edges were routed with a 1/8" round over bit. The...
  3. Outdoor Harvest Table

    I find a traditional picnic table can be difficult at times to get in and out of, as well as the general design lends itself to a park type setting, rather than the upscale look I wanted on the new deck I built at the cottage. This Harvest Table design combines the classic, clean lines of Shaker...

    I was not sure where to put this so I stuck it in here. Long story short I was looking for a place here locally to get my table saw blades sharpened. To my surprise there is "No One" in my area that sharpens anymore. I broke down and started calling cabinet shops and found the closest place to...

    Shaped and sanded My mom bought a simple 2×4 picnic table a few years ago and the top has not held up well. The boards are twisted and warped, and I thought it would be a good "test" subject for a new top using an idea that I have had for a while. Juniper grows with a very rapid taper, and...
