Thanks for the plans on the picnic table. I down loaded the plans. Used it
to buy the materials as suggested and built it in about 8 hours of work. In
two sessions. I went on step further and cut 45 degrees coiners on all
sides to include the seats. Thus taking away the corners that people tend
to get caught on. I am not a carpenter, but was able to follow the plans
and make a very sturdy table
I am now ready to go on to other plans you or someone else might have..
Thanks again for the plans..
Here is a picture Tony sent of his table:

I built the picnic table yesterday and it turned out beautiful.
Thanks bunches! Jim W.
Thank you so much for the picnic table plans. I just made the table yesterday, and it turned out beautifully! I had a bar-b-que with some friends and they were all very impressed. Thanks again!
I just finished making a picnic table with your plans. It turned out great.
One suggestion to make attaching the seat stretchers easier.
After measuring down 17" from the top I was confronted with holding the 5' length of 2x6 in place before it was bolted. I didn't have any help. I checked the marks and found that they were 8.5" from the bottom crossboard. So, I used a piece of 2x6 (5.5") and two 1x2's (1.5') each. Total 8.5".
I sat the stretcher on these three pieces, centered it, and it was ready to bolt. I screwed it on with one wood-screw per side before drilling for the bolts.
Thanks for the plans. We'll be enjoying that table for many years.
