Although I have probably have a dozen or more projects at 50% done or more, after the warm weather we had today on the upper east cost, the wife said we need a picnic table. I figured that’s easy to build and, maybe I can rope her and my daughter into the project and make it a whole family build.
I have found a few by other LJ members on here, and the one we really liked was done by fellow LJ’er, Joe Cumbo. The link to the plans I found on his project page was no longer any good, so I started searching the web.
I have found one, http://ana-white.com/2011/05/picnic-table-converts-benches
But I would like to know if any of you know of similar plans or have built one yourselves? Also what wood is what you might recommend? I don’t want to use pressure treated lumber, so I am thinking of just dimensional Douglas fir, that I will stain lightly and seal with a water sealer like Thompsons etc.
Any advice or suggestions as well is appreciated as always :)
