Build this classic project with basic hand tools. All it requires are a saw,
This 6 Foot picnic table plan is based on a time honored classic design.
For the prototype, I used treated lumber for the legs and regular pine for the rest of the parts. Treated
lumber for the legs because they are in contact with the ground. If kept painted, the pine will last for
several years. If you want to spend the extra money, you can make the whole thing from redwood. That was
the wood of choice for picnic tables back when the supply of redwood was better and the prices were
a drill, a screwdriver, and adjustable wrench.
