A single bench seat that can be changed into a picnic table with ease.

This 'Bench come Picnic Table' is ideal for those smaller areas where you don't want a picnic table taking up all the space, all the time.

When the eating is over and the table is no longer needed, it can be folded back into a comfortable single bench seat and put to one side, still very much usable but taking up minimum room.

It can be either a 2½ seater bench seat (2 adult and a kid), or a 5 seater picnic table.

The front seat spans 1373 mm (54"), the rear seat spans 1245 mm (49"), and the tabletop spans 1487 mm (58½")

Changing stock size and table length: This folding picnic table is constructed out of two different stock sizes.
To use a different stock size or change the length of the table go to page 8 for details.
