So how do you choose the best plans for your table? First, you need to consider your skill level. If you’re a beginning woodworker, a basic plan should be enough. Look for a top that is rectangular and square, and legs that don’t look too complicated. You should probably avoid features such as attached benches or umbrellas. You also don’t want an adjustable or oddly shaped table.
Determine the Purpose
So far I have been able to do most of the construction in my outdoor workshop. But before you attach the legs to the stretcher wood that runs between the 2 leg sections, I have to move everything outside. If you have a garage, patio or some other outdoor workspace, that will work too. At this point, it is probably easier to complete the whole base of the table with the table turned upside down. The next step is to drill, glue, and screw in the wood screws to connect the legs to the base.
I looked at the plans real quick and I went to buy the needed wood at the hardware store. Unfortunately, the weather got nasty so I had to postponed my project to the following week-end.
* Putting it all together
When it comes to the purchase of the picnic accessories, one can find plenty of items according to their budgets and needs in the markets. From internet to retails, the markets are flooded with the accessories that offer, maximum solutions to the picnicking needs. One cost effective way to find the picnic accessories is to sift through the items in the major retails at their year ending sales.
After you have constructed your picnic table, you will want to paint or stain it. Stain is the right choice if you want your project to look as good as it possibly can.
Problem was I was too busy at work and stowed them away in the garage and up til now I haven’t had the slightest idea what became of it, or if our dog Magic ate it for breakfast.
You may be able to find an article in a magazine that shows how to build one, or you can just Google “kids picnic table plans” to find some descent blueprints online. Then it is just a matter of going to your local building supply store to pick up the lumber and screws – definitely use screws instead of nails in case you have to make adjustments after it is partially together.
First he showed how the plans were incomplete about giving the measurements. They did not specified the size of the screws and what kind of wood was best to use nor the exact quantity to get. Besides the design was pretty simple too, and I realised I could do a much better table than that.
