Our preschool picnic table is one of the most popular plans. Due to the simple design, easy building instructions, and perfect sizing for preschoolers, thousands of these tables have been built! We love this table as a gift too!
1 – 1×6, 8′ Long (About $5.00 Each)
3 – 1×6 @ 31″ (Tabletop Pieces)
General Instructions. Work on a clean level surface and use proper safety precautions. Check for square after each step. Predrill and countersink all screws.
Legs to the Top. Fasten the legs to the top of the table, as shown above. Notice how the tip of the leg comes even with the outer tabletop boards? And the side of the leg meets up with the end of the support? Use 1 1/4″ Screws and glue to fasten in place. Notice the marks on the legs with a measurement of 12 3/4″? Make these marks on the legs, this is where the tops of the step 5 boards will be placed.
Finishing. Fill screw holes with wood filler, sand and finish as desired.
