OUTDOOR HARVEST TABLE AND BENCHES
(Picnic Table)


A traditional picnic table can be difficult at times to get in and out of, as well as the general design
lends itself to a park type setting, rather than the upscale look you want on that new deck you just built.
This Harvest Table design combines the classic, clean lines of Shaker styling in both the table and
benches, and matches the 5/4 cedar look of your deck. The complete project is made from
spaced
deck boards to allow for drainage,
mortised and tenoned into breadboard ends . The plans can be
easily adapted to a longer or shorter length. The center boards can be changed or the breadboard
ends can be reduced to one board instead of two. This table seats 8 people.
The tung oil finish gives a lasting beauty to the cedar, allowing you to touch it up each spring
without sanding and scraping off old flaking finishes. The amount of coats you give the project, will
determine the shine of the final coat.
All tenons are glued in the center section with polyurethane glue, and
pinned with cedar pegs on
either side. As well as an attractive look, the joint is rock solid and should not split or seperate, since
the humididty changes outdoors are not as extreme as they are inside your home.
The cedar 5/4 boards and 4x4's should be purchased well ahead of time, and allowed to dry in a
stacked, spaced position. If this material is stored outside at your lumber store, it will absorb a lot of
rain, if not covered properly.
Plans include a rough materials list, finished part sizes, detailed step by step instructions, diagrams, templates, and a page address for additional on-line instructions with 21 close-up pictures. Assembly instructions are organized to avoid duplicate setups. You will need most major power tools to build this project.
