Photos and Comments regarding the 4 seater picnic table project.
Just a note to tell you what a great time two ten year old kids had building the picnic table for four. Total cost was about $40 including Grandpa's mistakes. The kids did the project with only hand tools except to drill the holes for the lag bolts. When they tired of using the crosscut hand saw Grandpa took over but only a little. The kids did the cutting, drilling, measuring (including the compass to get the angles correct), nailing and adding a few screws to add strength. It took us two mornings because of staining and Grandpa got tired. We did add #8 2.5 inch wood screws to the seats and the braces just for solidity. In the end it was one heavy and sturdy table. We christened it today with a big watermelon. Biggest mistake was we built it in the garage and then discovered that it would not fit through the gate to the back yard. Ingenuity by 10 year olds solved the problem and it sits nicely under a shade tree. Many thanks for the plans.
The pictures show the almost finished project before staining. Notice the acting and we used protective eyeglasses.
