  1. Les, A couple pictures of my almost finished table/bench from the plans you sent me. Really cool project, I just need to finish with some sort of design/etching.

  2. Hi there, I bought the plan for the folding picnic table from you last week and today I’ve finished the project. Please have a look at the pictures attached.
    The plan is precise and the work went smoothly. The only thing I added to your plan – I rounded edges for a better look and pleasant touch.
    Definitely I’ll use your service in the future, there is a lot of interesting stuff on your website (K2 project is in queue 🙂
    Thanks a lot!

  3. We made the folding picnic table after your plans. It suits perfectly in our small garden here in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe.
    It was a really good guide that guided us through the process. Thanks for that 🙂

  6. ‘Hello Les, I just thought I would tell you that I have just finished the buildeazy table bench. I built it with USA pressure treated “2×4″s. They measure 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. I had built this table bench with one simple correction, shorten l seat (rear) pieces by 1 1/2 inches. Then assemble as the rest of the plan shows.
    Thanks for your help.’

  7. ‘I attached the 4 pictures I took of the finished product. I placed it online and it was sold and gone in less than 3 hours today. I am going to start the next one tomorrow, as this seems to be a hit around here =]’

  8. In the attachment I’ve added the photo’s of our homemade folding bench.
    It was easy thanks to your plans!! Thank you very much.
    We’ve already received a lot of great reactions from neighbors and cyclists.
    We placed the bench on the side of our house which is directly situated at the road.
    Cyclists actually already used it as a resting point when we weren’t at home.
    All the best to you en your company!

  9. My name is João Carlos I am Brazilian and I live in Brazil.
    I made the picnic bench used the site design.
    I’ll run another site project.
    I’ll sell and earn some money.
    Thanks, buildeazy team!

  10. I prefer one with arms and perhaps a wider table implying higher bench back. Any suggestions re best way to do it?

  11. Loved the project. I was curious if there was a way to make it wider by maybe two more boards. What would need to change other than the spread of the table. Any insight would help. Thanks for the great instructions !

  12. Hi

    I’m from South Africa. Here we work in metric sizes.
    Do your plans come in metric sizes.

  13. Old picnic table was rotting away so I took it apart, cleaned it, and cut boards out of it from your pin measurements. Granted these were 2”x 6” boards so there was a little tweaking involved but it turned out well and didn’t cost me a dime using the old picnic table. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Dear Les,
    It was a pleasure working with the instruction set you provided.
    The logic was clrar, ant the explanation of how to set the seat and table boards length was remarkable.
    Thank you so much!

  15. Hi, I have built your folding bench table 4-5 times for various friends and neighbors and it seems I have more problems as I go, particularly with the seat board lengths as it is hard for me to get it square and true early in the project. It will either be hard to fold into bench mode or the two sets of seat boards don’t come together evenly and straight. What am I doing wrong? The timber I am using here in New Zealand is treated pine in a smooth decking 1-1/4’x 3-5/8 and the seat boards are thicker to carry the extra weight of bodies especially at the picnic table. What am I doing wrong? Please help.

  16. What would I have to do to make this table more of an adult size table? I love the plans but when I made the table it is more of a kids size table. What dimensions for the cutting list would I have to increase and by how much to make this more of an adult size table? This table finished up as a more compact table than I wanted. Other than that I love the plans and the table. Please help.
