This is a newly designed rectangular picnic table created by Grampa's Woodshop for the summer of 2020.
It differs from all rectangular tables in that it is made totally from Eastern White Cedar logs and planks, and if you've read the 'Why Cedar?' page on my website, you'll understand why that is so important. The base is entirely made of cedar logs joined using mortise and tenon joints; which offers unbelievable strength and sturdiness to the table. Most joints are glued and timber screwed to even offer more strength. The table top and seats are made of cedar 2" x 6" planks with added cross members providing addition sturdiness. The table top is 78" long and 40" wide which is 4" larger than traditional tables. The seats provide an 8" gap in the middle on each side to allow people to shuffle thru to get seated, rather than having to lift their leg over a traditional bench. That is an excellent feature for the aging demographic.
The table comes coated with three coats of spar urethane to provide a gloss finish so it can be
easily cleaned. Plus it offers excellent UV protection to the wood and provides excellent protection from the weather, in particular the rain.
The price outlined is for the complete finished table. If you would like a table uncoated, then the price can be reduced $240.00. If you would like the table stained, then please contact me an we can discuss the finish you would like in detail and I can quote you a price.
Listen folks, this is an absolutely beautiful table and will look great on your deck, in your yard
or under your pergola or gazebo. It will stand the test of time.
