Covered Picnic Table Plans... For the Zealous Woodworker
Shop drawings, schematics, detailed and intricate illustrations provided.
As summer drew to an end I looked at my list of unfinished projects to decide which ones I would leave until spring and which ones I’d try and complete before the first snowfall. As I pillaged through the drawers in my workbench area I came across some covered picnic table plans. I had recently purchased them at "MyShedPlans.com". Anyhow, after looking through the set of plans, I remembered the promise I had made to my wife, and to my boys about building this project before winter.
As a family, we spend a lot of time outdoors. I thought that building a covered picnic table for the family would be a pretty cool thing to do. Something that might bring my sons and I closer together… you know, male bonding as we build this covered picnic table together.
There the plans sat, neatly folded and unused in a drawer under my workbench. I decided that we still had a few weeks of reasonable weather coming and I could build the picnic table this weekend. I checked off the material list and made a mental calculation on price and decided this would definitely be worthwhile.
I picked up the materials and started building early Saturday morning. I was surprised how easy this was to do but saw that I would never have been able to build it without the plans. An old craftsman once told me, "How can you build something if you don't know what you're building?" Now I see where he was comming from.
The boys were impressed with how the project turned out. I was feeling pritty good about it as well. We actually finished something without a hitch and immediately planned to barbaque the next day. It was a hit with the neighbors. I’m telling you, if you want to do something that the entire family can share in then you might want to consider your very own covered picnic table plans.
