Made six of these for the elementary school. Turned in to being a very good construction project for my students and I in class.

Wow, nice design. Can you share some details of how much materials it took to make one?
I’d like to make one for this summer….
thanks!

This is a nice clean table and would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s yard.

SteveW- The original plans were from Woodcraft however it did have to change some due to differences in some dimensions. It took about $200 for each one of these we built. We used the cedartone boards since they were going to be outside. The top and seats were made out of deck boards and the frame was either 2X6’s or 2X4’s. If you want more exact measurements etc. let me know and I will dig through some of my papers and find it.

Thanks everyone for your positive feedback!
