Here’s a project that gets a work out during the summer. When you want a comfortable place to sit outside it’s a park bench. When you want to eat outside the bench converts to a picnic table. I built 2 of them and when I put both of them together as a picnic table it seats 6 people and still has plenty of table space for food and drink.
I built it out of preasure treated 2×4s. I can’t remember what book I got the plans out of but if somebody is interested I look for it.
They work pretty well. The back/top pivots and there are 2 eye bolts (one on each end) that locks the back/top either in the back or top positions. Just remember to use galvanized hardware so you wont have to worry about rust.
