This four seater picnic table with attached seating is made solely our of 2x4 dressed treated lumber. It is one of the most basic of picnic tables but is very sturdy and will last for years.

Total materials required for this project are 75 ft of 2x4 dressed treated lumber (or other lumber suitable for outside use), eight 3/8"x 4" galvanized carriage bolts and about fifty 3 1/2" galvanized flat head nails.

Note that dressed (surfaced, planed) 2x4 lumber finishes at approximately 1 1/2" x 3 1/2", so the 'actual size' is smaller than the 'nominal size'. The sizes used in this project are the 'actual sizes'.

Below are the picnic table plans followed by some brief instructions.

picnic table members


Cut all the members for the picnic table out of 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" stock. Refer to the plan above for lengths and angle cuts. Cut the longest pieces first to minimize wastage.

On flat surface make up the two end frames comprising of the cross members and the legs. Use above plans for reference.

Stand the two end frames upright and fix the seat members and the table members to the appropriate cross members.

Turn the picnic table upside down and fix the braces in place insuring that the end frames are square (at right angles) to the table and seat members.

Done! Pop it into the garden and enjoy.
