Finding most tables way over priced to buy! I wanted to use Eastern White Cedar due to the properties it has for long life outdoors treated or untreated even. Love the smell of the wood, and the texture in the grains…and it is extremely tough for a softwood. Hope others appreciate it as much as i did once it was done!

I’ve been entertaining making a Hex picnic table, they make a lot of sense to me. After building this fine piece what is your feelings toward how well it will workout?

This was a request from a friend for a heavy duty table with the bench style seats so luckily i did not have to store it!!! I also make another hex table with just the single seats that only seats six!

Kelly – I actually only found one thing about the bench style that i personally don’t like and that is having to climb over the bench to get seated…hence also making the single seat per side style table. One little extra though was the chamber in the center i call the honey comb…i added a lid to this one shown as a compartment to store pop or something in. Some i have built have a hole in the top and the umbrella comes down through the top and into the honey comb as a solid base which works very nice.
