This is the third folding picnic table I have put together. This one was for a coworker. It is mostly all 2×4’s and the armrests are cedar. I used the sign making router jig to add his name to the front of it. And it is finished with two layers of deck sealer.

Very cool. Are there plans available for these?

Yes I can’t remember where I got them but I googled folding picnic tables and found a set of plans I liked.

Nice looking table and bench. I like the idea.

How much does it weigh?

What is the best configuration to pick it up – table or bench?
