Re Kid's Picnic Table Project

My wife had been hinting that she would like a kids picnic table that would suit our kids, ages 6 and 4. I had not built one before, but started looking for a simple plan to follow as a first attempt. I found the one on your site, it seemed simple enough, and pulled a bunch of scrap from my pile of wood for the first “attempt”. It turned out great. I ended up giving that one away to my sister in law, as the plan is slightly small for a 6 year old, but great for 2-4 year olds. I then took the original plan, and modified it. I lengthened the legs another few inches, and altered the length to have a 5 foot table, and slightly deeper as well. My version has 4 2x6 boards on the top as opposed to the 3 in the plan. I took my router to all the edges, then took my orbital sander to everything, masking it as smooth as possible, as I was using stock spruce construction grade lumber, counter sunk the screw holes, plugged them, and finished it with outdoor stain paint. I got it together, and it was barely dry and it ended up going to my sister for her kids! Now my own kids were getting upset as I kept giving away their picnic tables. I built another one immediately, and all I have left to do is paint it. My own mother wants one too for when the grandkids come over! It’s been fun though…keep up the simple approach plans…they’re awesome.
