This table was for one of my delivery guys, the Schwann’s truck guy. He ordered the table from me with specific requests for dimensions that would allow him to sit at a picnic table comfortably. He is a big guy.
I built this table using 2X6 lumber from my local home improvement store, and it seats 8 comfortably. I think it’s pine, but I’m not sure. Whatever 2X6 lumber they are pumping out in mass quantities for housing. I used weather treated screws, and he will be finishing it to match his deck, so no finish applied.
The tabletop is 74 inches by 34 inches, and the bench pieces are spaced to they are 12 inches, and of course by the same 74 inches.
It was a fun project, and even the boys got involved holding pieces here and there for me.
