We finally got our back patio built and all that was missing was a table. Rather than spending a boat-load of money on one that kinda worked for us, I decided to just build one. So here we are. I actually used two picnic table Instructables as my sources and just modified them to fit my needs. The first one
had the idea of detached benches that I really liked. The second one
added a couple simple design elements that were real sleek. With elements from both of these, I set out to create a combination of the two. I intend to show you the process of how I constructed mine rather than the precise measurements of each cut. I am an amateur woodworker with only common sense and some basic tools. I will also show you some things that I learned from. You should take this template and make your own creation. For even more detailed pics, just click the i
in the upper left hand corner of any photo. Feel free to comment, and if you have any questions I'll try my best to answer them. A big thanks to the Instructables community for this project. Below is a video of how much wobble this table has. I really think there should be more of these demos for people to see how to improve others' designs. Good Luck!!
