This is neat picnic table that makes out to two beaches when you don’t need a table , stayed pretty much to the plans but added some 2×8s for the arm rest to add beer /coke holders with a pic of scrape on the bottom to stop it from going all the way thur.i have added the link if your interested in one ,just a word on the plans they have a set for free but its a lot easier to pay the 5 buck and get a set to have in hand plus this guy went to the trouble to post his site it just will save you a lot of recuts as i did a few,this is pine with golden oak stain and a few coats of poly and a lite sanding .i did plug the screw holes with plugs of hard wood, nothing fancy . a lot of times i needed more sitting area than a table and if you have family r friends over they are always glad to help put them together.i also added a link to see it in video too.thanks for looking .

Very cool eddie – just gotta remember to remove the beer before folding into a table…....that would be bad!

Looks pretty functional! Plus I see a couple of your signature chairs! Lot’s of folding things in your yard!

Very nice Eddie. I can just picture you and your fancy woman with a big box of Popeye’s chicken wings and fighting over the biscuits.

Nice job on the convertable table/benches but I am really envious of all that green stuff on the ground. We haven’t seen grass in months. We’re having to feed hay to everything (and people are already getting $10/ bale for prarie hay).

Now that is cool Eddie, And I like the dogs as well. My wife likes it to. I have to be careful with what she likes, I may be building one.
Great job.
