Nice table, but to be honest, I’m looking for something a little more sturdy. ;-)

That is really the awesomest picnic table ever made. I reminds of medieval royal dining tables.

What Brandon said. When I looked at it I first thought of a gang of Vikings sitting around it. Cool table.

No one will steal it, either. Especially with that big ass paper weight on top.

Nice looking table. Is it a permit load? And does the forklift come with it so it can be unloaded?

Are those bases 10 inches? Damn. I like it.

When I read “sturdy” and “cedar” in the same sentence, I had to make sure. Then I saw a car on top of it. That’s sort of similar to my test…. times 15. Rustic, too, it’s a damn good table.

How can you eat with a car on your table LOL. That’s got to be the strongest table I’ve ever seen.

Nice table!!! anyone have plans for building shelving wracks you know like the kind you get from Home Depot in plastic but out of wood. Also, is there a website for discount Screws and nails in bulk say 500 to 1,000. I’m taking my first carpentry class and just learning the VERY basics – starting with Porter Cable 18V 424 Torque 1,400 RPM drill.
