Goodbye plastic chairs, hello sturdy picnic table. This table was a weekend project that took just about 5 hours from beginning to end. Started and finished this Mother’s Day, the table will seat 4 comfortably with space on the ends for extra guests. The wood is pressure treated lumber from the local giant orange hardware store. Add some bolts and a few deck screws and we’ve got a picnic table! But wait, there’s more… hidden underneath the center plank are two buckets for beverage storage!
The ‘coolers’ are just planters that are mounted underneath the tabletop. They are attached to the supporting crossbars and mounted flush so that they’re completely hidden when the covers are put in place.
I freestyled this build – no plans or drawings and I’m happy that it turned out so well.
