I wanted a picnic table that had benches that will not tip over. This is for a home that we rent as a vacation home and I did not want people to be able to tip over a bench. It was also important that it would sit 8 people comfortably. I looked around the net for quite a while till I found this design. I used pressure treated instead of cedar for the beach environment that it is going to be in. I built it in my shop in Fl, disassembled it, trucked it to the outer banks, and reassembled it.

Thanks for looking

That is a most excellent picnic table. Nice job.

Thanks for all the kind words. It has worked out very well. It also is very good at being steady with an umbrella on a windy day.


I like your signature, it is so true.
