A friend of mine asked me to build this picnic table that folds up into a bench. I found some plans that made it go fairly easily. I used construction grade 2×4’s for it and some 1×6 pieces of cedar I had laying around for the armrests. For the pivot points I epoxied steel bushings into the wood and then used stainless steel bolts for the pivot points. That way it should last a lot longer and never rust together either. It was really a fun project that went together fairly quickly other than it required lots of sanding.
