  128. Conclusion


Nothing beats eating with good friends and family outdoors. A long-time staple when dining out is the picnic table. Picnic tables are commonly found in parks, beaches, resorts, lakeside areas and recreational centers.

You can also find picnic tables in RV centers, schools, in senior centers and in most places where people are allowed to have a picnic. The classic picnic table has a table where you can place picnic food and beverages while the two benches are on both sides of the table. The picnic table benches may be attached to the table or detached.

Attached benches are as equally popular as detached models with two large beams connecting both ends of the benches to the table as the most common design. The detached version is simply a long table with equally long benches.

Picnic tables differ in size. You will find tables that can only fit two people, one on each side or a total of twelve or sixteen people, 6 or 8 people on each of the benches. Yet there are small picnic tables meant for children, toddlers, and school-age kids. There are also larger tables meant for adults.

And while most picnic tables use wood as the material of choice there are some builders who use composite materials like plastic or metal. Most builders create picnic tables and benches with materials that they have readily on hand like recycled plywood, wooden pallets, and wood from fallen trees.

Finally, picnic tables come in different shapes. There are tables with a rectangular shape, square shape, circular shape or octagonal shape. As you can see, picnic tables are so versatile, functional and are available in different designs and shapes. And the fact that picnic tables are not just used for dining, you must have one in your backyard or patio. You can use this for preparing food, for crafts or for working in your garden. 


The following are plans for the best 125 picnic table projects online. Most of these plans are quite easy with the materials and equipment needed to make these tables available almost anywhere. These amazing picnic table projects contain a detailed list of materials, step by step instructions on how to go about the build and some useful tips too. Find your next weekend project here.

1) The Classic Picnic Table

When I was a child, I had picnics with my family and this classic picnic table was my favorite.  I didn’t want to sit on the grass or on a blanket, I wanted to enjoy nature but at the same time eat comfortably. Now this classic park picnic table is one of the easiest to make.

As you can see, the table is made from wooden pallets while the benches are also made of the same material. This table and benches are obviously new and need a nice coat of paint or wood stain.

Making this table would be easy even if you are new to woodworking or have never made a picnic table before. This project will surely be done in just a few hours if you have the right materials and good tools to use.

2) The Wood-father Table

What’s not to love about this table? This is another all-time picnic table classic design where the benches are connected to the table. You will find that this is a good option if you want to build a nice, clean and organized dining area on your backyard.

The table is large and can accommodate up to 8 people side by side. The seats are also long and wide, however, these may not be that strong to sit a large or heavy person. But despite this flaw, you may find this design a very straightforward and easy one. It does not require a lot of skill as a woodworker to do as well.

Take note that if you make outdoor furniture pieces like a picnic table or a bench, make sure you waterproof your wood. This will reduce damage from water and the harsh sun plus will also enhance the beauty of your furniture, like this one. The link to the picnic table plans easy and can be accomplished even on a weekend.

3) The Easy Step in Picnic Table

When you are so eager, and hungry, to eat at a picnic, you tend to forget everything and just focus on the delicious feast. Sometimes you are too caught up with the picnic that you forget that there’s a bench between you and the table.

Accidents can be avoided with this easy step in picnic table. The benches stay near the table because these are attached to the table as well. But unlike the previous design, the seats here have their own separate feet so these can carry even the weight of a large person.

This picnic table is also wide and long which can accommodate up to ten people, five on each side. It is made of strong wooden pieces and was stained to protect the wood. With this design, you don’t need to worry about moving and assembling your benches too so everything stays perfect for all your guests.

4) The Connected Picnic Table

The kids in the photo seem to be waiting for food to get served in their kid-sized picnic table. The table looks robust and can take a lot of punishment from these tough kids!

The seats are connected to the table so there’s no movement on the benches whatsoever. This is made from very tough wood and was stained to protect the table and bench surfaces from heat and rain. This design can double as a kid’s outdoor crafts table or simply just a place to sit, read and relax.

You can place this on your backyard, garden, and patio. The plans to make this project are very simple and can even be adjusted according to your preference. These seats four kids but you can make the seats and table longer to accommodate more.

5) Picnic Table Design with a Planter in the Middle

This is a picnic table/ planter which is a good idea if you want to host a party or outdoor event. The planter is simply a slot provided in the middle of the table. This space makes the table wider so you can place more food and beverages.

The seats here are separate from the table and are actually too low for most people. But despite this, this table seems to prove that even something as simple as a picnic table can be updated. But if you don’t like to add plants or flowers, you can otherwise use this slot to place napkins, spoons, and forks or fill this with ice to make the ultimate beer cooler.

This woodworking project takes only an afternoon to build because it is very easy. Just like most picnic table plans, you can adjust these according to your preference.

6) Picnic Table and Seating Area Plan

This is another innovative way to design a picnic table. Instead of just going for the table and bench set, why not make a picnic table that transforms into an outdoor seat?

This is a clever design that will save you time, money and effort. You can use this as a picnic table with chairs if you have company or if you want to eat out with family or your friends. But if you are not doing this, you can simply fold this to make large seats.

Don’t be fooled with the design because this is actually very easy to make. It can be completed in just a weekend just make sure you have all the materials handy as well as all your hand and power tool are ready. This could be your next outdoor project.

7) Kid’s Picnic Table

This is an adorable picnic table made especially for kids. This is small and will fit up to four kids. You can place this on your backyard, patio or in your garden where your kids and their playmates can do crafts, play or simply laze around.

This is made from wooden pallets and has a rounded edge even the bench has this shape. The benches are connected to the table so you won’t have to clean up after your kids.

The plans to make this table are actually quite easy and you can actually do this even if you have never built any table or chair. What’s important is that you either paint your table with waterproof paint or stain it to keep the beauty of wood.

8) Picnic Table for Kids

This picnic table follows the classic design where the benches are connected to the table. As you can see, this is a small table that was meant for kids to eat on. Most family outdoor picnics have the adult table and a kids’ table so that the kids can have a good time dining with their playmates, cousins, and siblings.

This table can accommodate four kids, two on each side. But, with the easy plans to make this table, you can make the table longer and the benches longer too to be able to accommodate more mini guests. You may also make the table wider so you can serve more food.

And aside from eating on this table, kids may also use this to do their homework, to do crafts or to play with their friends and playmates. This is an easy build that you can finish in just a few hours.

9) Picnic Table Bench Design

This is another design that will teach you how to build a full-sized picnic table and a bench. The table here is made of long wooden pallets which were obviously sanded and treated to protect the wood surface.

The bench is as long as the table but is narrower and made of the same wood pallets but with slots to allow air to move in. This foldable and dual-function outdoor furniture is actually very easy to construct and in fact, you don’t need to be an expert woodworker to complete this project at all.

So if you are looking for a good project to do this weekend, try this unique picnic table design.

10) Cedar Picnic Table

What I like about this table is that the builder took woodworking very seriously. Cedar was used, not just recycled wooden pallets, which means that foremost, the table and chairs are strong.

The table is not just joined pieces of lumber but rather arranged planks with long pieces of wood as edges. The table legs were provided with support beams to further improve the strength of the table. The benches have received the same treatment and were constructed with the same type of wood.

All-in-all, the simple table, and bench design were made challenging. So if you are looking for a challenge in building your backyard picnic table then this could be it.
