Doll Picnic Table From Preschool Picnic Table Plans

Submitted by chrimicha on Mon, 01/09/2017 - 19:14

This is my scaled down version of the preschool picnic table, made for an 18 inch doll. I used scrapwood that someone was throwing away and supplies left over from other projects, so it didn't cost anything but time. My girls have really enjoyed it. Here are the measurements: 

Cut List: 

4 – 1×3 @ 17-3/4″ (Tabletop pieces) 

 

1- 1×4 @ 9-3/4″, then cut in half using a table saw to equal 2 pieces (Supports directly beneath tabletop pieces) The longest measurement is 9 ¾”, with the ends cut at a 30 degree angle back to 7 3/4″.

 

2-1×4 @ 12-7/8”, then cut in half using a table saw to equal 4 pieces (Legs) (angle each end to 30 degrees as shown in preschool table plans) 

 

1 – 1×4 @ 19″, then cut in half using a table saw to equal 2 pieces (Supports directly beneath seat boards)  (angle ends to 30 degrees as shown in preschool table plans)

 

4 – 1×3 @ 17 3/4″ (Seat boards) I ran these 1 x 3’s through my table saw to make them 2” wide.

 

*When attaching the legs, secure them to the supports below the tabletop pieces so that the bottom of the legs will measure 19 5/8” from lateral edge to lateral edge when resting on the ground. In the preschool picnic table plans, this measurement is shown as 33”.
