bigger kids picnic table

Submitted by chrimicha on Tue, 06/21/2011 - 19:03

My kids needed a picnic table and I was less than impressed with what the stores in the area had to offer... I ended up with some leftover wood from the builders in our developing neighborhood and voila! A picnic table. It took 2 or 3 hours to construct, and a few more for sanding and painting.

Estimated Cost
5$ for paint
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Finish Used
1 pint (sample size) of Lime Rickey from Sherman Williams. I also used water based spar urethane by miniwax.
