Picnic Table that folds into a bench. Every thing cut on my miter saw. Haven’t used it in a while.

I like this! I was wondering if you used Pressure treated wood? Is it heavy when converting it into a bench and back to a table?
Nice job and very interesting!

Treated 2×4s. Although most were cut and planed to 1.25”. The wood is still very wet and heavy. Folding it back to a bench is much easier than bringing it back to a table. Im sure there is an easy way just got to figure it out. Im sure it will much easier to handle once that wood dries out.

I see, I would think after it dries over time it should loose some weight. Thanks for the reply! Again, Nice work!

Charlie. Saw this about a year ago. Wasn’t my idea. I found plans online.
