My daughter wanted a picnic table that could be taken apart for storage during the long winters in Northern New York.This trestle table is made of cypress with purple heart pegs holding the two cross members in place. They come out, the top comes off and it stores until the warm weather returns…about June! The parrot is extra…

Hey, that is a NICE table! Great job. The parrot looks great too!

The table will last a lot longer storing it inside for the winters. Good idea.

Man, I really love this!

And I hope that little fella puts some clothes on before winter. :-)

It will stay lighter longer, but I don’t know if it will last longer if kept indoors in the winter. The cypress will last forever. I don’t know about the purpleheart.

Very nice table.

You daughter should be able to pass it on in her will.

Love the table. What’s the chances of getting you to blog the process of making the base/legs?
