Picnic Table Plans – Build a picnic table with easy detailed plans
The tantalizing aroma of sizzling steak fills the air. The cloudless summer evening is warm. The ice cold beer slides down effortlessly. Excited laughter echoes around the patio…….. The BBQ is under way!
BUT, oh no! Where is everyone going to sit? Where is all the food going to go? People are uncomfortably perched everywhere with plates balanced on their knees.
Having the capacity to enable you to seat all of your guests can be an expensive exercise. A big challenge with picnic tables is that you can have a high initial cost and then because they are so big and bulky you have the additional cost of freighting them to your home. Extra large ones are not even legal to transport on the road.
My name is Philip Griffith. I have been involved in the woodworking business for over 25 years. One of my interests has been in the design and manufacture of picnic tables.
This suburb little table can seat 6 adults very comfortably. The table top measures 47â (1190mm) to the parallel sides. It is very simple to construct because all of the angles on the table are 60 degrees. Even with a minimum of tools it should take no more than a day to build.
This table can seat 12 people very cosily. The table top measures 57â (1450mm) to the parallel sides. It is also very simple to construct because all of the angles on the table are once again 60 degrees.
This table would make a stunning addition to your patio. It can seat 8 adults very comfortably plus a few kids as well. The table top measures 64â (1625mm) to the parallel sides. All of the angles on the table top and seats are 45 degrees while the angles of the legs are 60 degrees.
This is the mother of all tables. Very large. It can seat 16 people comfortably. The table top measures a massive 80â (2035mm) across to the parallel sides. Despite its size it is still very simple to construct because there are still only 2 angles on the table, 45 degrees and 60 degrees. You may need some friends to help shift it into position though.
Purchased your plans last week for the large hexagon. I have done very BASIC projects in the past. This was my first attempt at any project that required angled cuts. My wife and I are extremely pleased with the results. The table came out nearly perfect. Picked up a few lessons learned along the way that will help with future tables. Bottom Line. Thank you. The table was perfect and only took about 8 hours of work. John Saunders
Dear Mr. Philip, I hope my English is sufficiënt to let you know that I took the plan as a guideline to make a a frame picnic table out of used floor beams. So I have to calculate a lot because I like to work with centimeters instead… Read more…
