A refreshing new look to an old standard.

The standard picnic bench was in desperate need of a redesign. I like the shapes – it looks very light. However, the benches and tabletop look a little narrow. I’m sure this will be a popular product for you.

That looks great. That would really improve the look of any backyard.

Nice design!!

How do you take care of lateral movement? I’m guessing there are supports under the top.

Hi Jeff
Thank you everyone for the kind words. I am new to this forum but it will get easier I am sure.

Yes, there is a support running down the center of the table to tie everything together. There is zero lateral movement and the bottoms of each leg have stainless steel “feet” to prevent wicking

Wow. Its about time someone stepped up to the plate to make the picnic table a true piece of furniture. Got a picture of the under side? Yeah, I’d like to build one but do I want to build the bending jig? I should bend more. Again, WOW!

VERY easy on the eyes. How thick is each lamination?

Dave, that is without a doubt the best looking picnic table set I’ve ever seen! Looks like you steam bent the legs; what kind of wood did you use? It’s so well designed and made, I just may have to make one just like it! What are the dimensions, Dave?
