I built this table over 10 years ago and it is still as strong, sturdy and beautiful as it was new.
The octagon table is meant to seat eight people very comfortably and the arrangement of the seat slats allows people to access their seat without having to lift their legs over the seats; as they would with a traditional picnic table. It is made from spruce and over-constructed than the original plansto account for bigger bodied folks. The finish is two coats of latex gloss paint with the red Canadian maple leaf templated on the table top. The table top edges are painted red as well along with the outer seat slats.
The complete painted table is listed at $1,100.00. The table alone unpainted is $750.00 and the table painted white is $950.00. If you would like made from a wood other than spruce and finished in different colors and/or stained, please feel free to contact me and we can discuss in detail.
This is a very solid table folks and will stand the test of time.
