I wanted to make my niece something for her first birthday and got tired of making toy boxes. I threw together a bean/sand/rice table for my kids and they love it so I thought she’d like one, but then I thought that she might like a kid-sized picnic table. Instead of deciding which one to make, I thought I’d combine the two. Since we had to travel to Oklahoma for Christmas (missing my niece’s first birthday by 6 months) and we don’t have much room in the vehicle, I made the table easy to assemble/disassemble: The box & top stay intact but it has T-nuts and hex-head bolts holding all the components together. The seat boards screw on with deck screws.
