This is a $5 (USD) downloadable PDF file. Plans for a folding picnic table of 2×4 (50×100) wood
that folds down to a single bench seat.
Made solely out of 2×4 (50×100) wood,

The size of the thing

In picnic table mode the overall footprint (area it takes up on the ground) is 60″ (1524mm) long by 47-1/4″ (1200mm) wide.
In bench seat mode the overall footprint is 60″ (1524mm) long by 21-1/2″ (545mm) wide.
The height is 29″ (737mm)

It is built using one wood size only – 2×4 (50×100), a very common stock size.
The bench arms that have adorned the other models have been done away with as it is excess work, excess materials, and when in picnic table mode it is better without them.
This complete unit is built solely out of standard 2x4s (which measure 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches, actual size).

All the pieces can be cut from 9 only 8ft lengths of 2×4. Pretty common stuff.

This model also has an optional ‘clip-on’ piece that adds to the height of the backrest when the unit is in bench mode.
The ‘clip-on’ actually adds somewhat to back comfort and (depending on taste) gives the bench more appeal.

    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!

    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 🙂

    ‘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.’

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.
