Picnic Table Plans

When I decided to build my own Picnic table for the backyard, I looked all over the internet for ideas and plans for help.  The only picnic table diagrams I found were pretty much unusable.

I was hoping that I would find something that I could download quickly and easily off of the internet.  What I did find were blueprints of terrible quality and they didn’t give me the information I needed.  I needed not only layouts, but material lists to make the job easier.

I soon found a solution..

I never did find any picnic table plans for free, but I did find a couple of places that had them for a decent price.

The two places I found were:

Teds Woodworking

My Shed Plans

Important:  You should know that these two websites do not specialize in just picnic table plans.  Along with picnic table plans they also have hundreds of other woodworking plans.

You can build any size picnic table you like, but Teds woodworking has a compact picnic group that is very easy to move and takes no more room than a regular size table.  It is great for families with small children.

Building Tip:

When building your picnic table, you will be using close to one hundred weather resistant screws.  Make sure to drill your screw holes a little undersized and countersunk so the screw heads are below the surface of the wood.

I hope this information is helpful and saved you time looking for picnic table plans.  What I would recommend is to check out Teds Woodworking plans to find out more.  The plans include a 60 day money back guarantee, so you really have nothing to lose.

    I am looking to build a few tables for my yard at my cabin. What is the best wood to use? I like the natural look and want to stain them instead of painting. Would any type wood work for this?

    thanks,

      The wood you use will probably depend on where you live in the United States. If you live in the western states redwood or red cedar is used. It is a great wood for this because it does not rot, resists bugs, takes stain really well and can be left untreated and still hold up under rain and sun. The only drawback is that the wood is soft and you may end up with some nicks and dents on your table. If you live in the east your will choice will probably be pine. White pine is readily available in the northwest and will hold stain and paint well. Pressure treated wood is also an option. I would look to see what is available and affordable.
