This is a picnic table I built yesterday, thanks to Logan for posting his plans and the advice…his table can be found

Initially I did not want the cross members supporting the table underneath because as a tall guy I always seem to smash my knees, but there was too much side to side sway. With my boys being as active as they are I know that they will be all over that table in the next few years and I want it to last, so I added the cross members and so far it seems to have enough clearance and I seem to have enough room. I also had to build “shoes” for my table to level it out on an un-level surface, that being my roman circle that has sunk on one side over the years. Seems to have done the trick and they can be removed it we take it out onto the grass or elsewhere. Only thing left to do is to treat the cut ends and it should last for a long time. Thanks for looking,

I like the shoe idea. How do we turn these shoes into wheelies? You know, those shoes with wheels in them so kids can drive store clerks nuts by skating all over the store? If the shoes came with wheels, at least on one end, it might be easier to move the table. Maybe boots that slip on when needed … If picnic tables were easier to move, fewer people with upper body strength problems could mow the lawn … if you get my drift.

I think you are on to something here.
