I pride my self in reading people by talking with em and can usely get a feel as what type person they are but not always this guy threw me off from the start ,you just really never really know . i do woodwork on the side , just enjoy building stuff with wood i have a web page but its not the money as i would starve to death on what i make its A supplemental income and not much supplement :) , , got a order the other day for a yogi bear picnic table , i though it was someone i knew pulling a joke again so i went along told em i have some Boo Boo tables but not any yogi tables ,what was a yogi picnic table anyways i said ,he told me it was the one made for fat people like yogi bear , i said i see , but i dont have any but you could go to lowes or home depoe and get a good one for 100 bucks made of treated 2×6 , he told me they are to small and that he wanted one with the bench un attached from the table so he could use it to stand on and hang Christmas lights and want it over 6 ft long ,i went along with him and said yea i could make a fat mans picnic table one that would sit 8 yogi bears and have benches that one could walk on , , i made this one its 80 inches long ,made of treated 2×8s and 2×4 s , he bought two of them , you just never know ,by his talk i thought he was a bull s#$^%* and come to pass it was just the way he talked just a old country boy, plans are here you can get them free but for 5 bucks can get a set on line its a lot easer to have them with ya and i like to give a bit as he went to the trouble to share , sold a few of these so far and most the notching can be done on a miter saw .

Nice looking table!
I think Yogi would love this table and have … a pinic!
Why is the one photo fuzzy?
It looks like you had fog on the lens.

I like the idea of the detached seats, that 8 foot table of mine is a Yogi Bear to move. Great job eddie…..
