For my first table I will show you a picnic table I created out of frustration. We could not find anything close to what we wanted in the local market. I created our table out of full demension cedar lumber.

I could have chose any type of lumber I wanted for my table. I chose cedar because of its ability to stand up to weather and the environment.

I love any custom picnic table, that is stylistically removed from the ubiquitous, mass-produced ones we all grea up with.

This one looks like it’ll stand up to the elements (and kids) for years and years to come. Very nice.

Very nice Splinters. Looks Mission/Arts & Crafts. Lots of room for get togethers.

Necessity is the mother of invention! Nice job, looks very solid. We have some at our local playground that are just horrible. I am thinking that I might need to do some guerrilla repair work…

Thanks for all the nice comments fellow Jocks…(I hope I can call you that MsDebbieP)
The table and benches really work well….I didnt list it before but it is 8 foot by 4 foot with the two 8 foot benches.
