These are my Octagon Picnic Tables and I also make Hexagon. They are made out of Treated Lumber and are very Heavy! What kind of other wood do you think these would look good in but also stand up to mother nature? Thanks for looking and if you have any questions or suggestions…let me have them!

Heavy??? REAL HEAVY!!
I made one about a decade ago and it took 6+ people to carry it around to the back yard. I used the design where you can swing your legs through on each long stretch.

It was the talk of the yard parties for years.
