Simply Measure, Cut, Drill & Assemble!
This picnic table is an ideal project for the budding young woodworker to test his (or her!) skills. The picnic table is an ideal size to seat children from the ages of about 1 year through to 7 years old. Although kids in this age group will obviously be too young to build such a table, this project is designed to be one that bigger kids can build for smaller kids (while of course being supervised or helped by a capable adult).

This basic project involves simply cutting the pieces of wood to length, marking where the holes are to be drilled, drilling the holes and putting the pieces together. This table can be built without the use of any power tools.

helpful tips

bullet Using good quality tools (such as those made for adults) makes the task easier.

bullet Use a sharp 8 point (i.e. 8 teeth per inch) handsaw for general cutting. If you are not experienced in using handsaws, use blocks of wood and clamps to act as a saw-guide. Do not use your hand for a guide.

bullet All electric tools should be used by a capable adult, unless under strict supervision. Even if only using a non-electrical hand drill, goggles should still be worn as a drill bit might snap and fly through the air.

bullet Screwdriver handle should be big enough to ensure a good grip. Square head screw drivers (with appropriate screws) tend to slip less.
