    Because I am maintenance at an apartment complex. I use the shop for daily work and also my projects after hours. Longer explanation on my website in "the evolution of my shop" section

  • Chris Jaussi

    Jay, thanks for another great video and project. The only thing I would have done different would be to round over the seats and table top. Sometimes just breaking the edges helps the table be more comfortable. Also, rounding over the corners helps with child proofing. Reminds me of a line out of the move Christmas story, "you'll shoot your eye out." When I'm working on a project, I worry about one of my kids running into them and losing any eye. Chris

  • Jay Bates - Woodworking Videos

    So long as mother nature is taken into consideration this one will last a long time. Thanks for watching!

  • scott m

    Hi, nice looking lawn furniture. Looking at the completed table on your website, I see the carriage bolts excess threads past the nuts. I could see myself having one of those OH SHIT moments when I scrap my leg on the bolt sticking out while entering or exiting the table. 🙂 I would cut the bolts and sand flush with the nut.
    If you're going to make them out of soft pine you may want to put a coat of water sealer on them. You will get negative advertising when it was the customers fault.

  • scott m

    Hello again… I was referring to getting negative advertising because the customer didn't paint it or put on a couple coats of sealer on it and it looked in kinda tough shape after a couple years.

  • Jay Bates - Woodworking Videos

    I mentioned in the video I was putting a Tinted Honey Gold Thompsons Water Sealer on it after. The pics a the end show them with sealer on. Thanks for watching and have a good day!

  • Jay Bates - Woodworking Videos

    Yeah I can see that happening. I was using some that I had on hand. The best length for these tables is a 3-1/4" carriage bolt. I used a 3-1/2". Thanks for watching 🙂

  • Jay Bates - Woodworking Videos

    Thanks James! I noticed on your facebook page that you graduated from Redford…I grew up in Livonia on 5 mile and middlebelt! Small world.

  • James Carey

    When I was about 6 yrs old,(1966) I helped my Dad (watched him) cut down a 6"- 4" pine tree in Kirkland lake. My Grand parents lived there from the 30's until the 70's (I was born in 1959) He built a picnic table out of it. Using the tree for everything except the top and seats My brother still has it (My parents passed away in Sept 2011 in their early 80's)(They were married 63years.

  • James Carey

    By the way, sorry. I think your table is very good, with some great ideas. I will make that some day. Thank you Dude

  • Jay Bates - Woodworking Videos

    Your welcome. It's good to see some of the older projects last through out the years. That's quite a long time for a pine picnic table to last. That proves it was built well! Thanks for watching 🙂

  • Donnie G

    Thanks for the vid. My better half wants some of these pronto. I plan to make them 4 ft. long simply because I can't physically handle the big ones anymore. Great plans.

  • Jason Wright

    I just wanted to let you know that I just finished making this picnic bench for my father. Thanks for the plans and the video.

  • Dave Pelcher

    Nice job as usual. I saw in a video of your, you spayed the finish on. Was the sprayer you used from Harbor Frieght & if so which one, and was it a good gun for spraying water sealer? Sorry, A lot of questions…Dave

  • Jay Bates - Woodworking Videos

    I used a cheapo 2 gallon pump sprayer from walmart. It does a great job for spraying water sealer. Just be sure to clean it out when you are done.

  • jcfoster21

    Jay what a fantastic job, instructions and explanations were great. I will try this and make one for my friend. Will definitely watch more of you videos. Thank you for the inspiration 🙂

  • MrImlostinspace

  • PntCre Txn

    Thanks for the tutorial. This will be my weekend project. Before I do another project, I will watch your video first. Kudos to you. A+++++

  • Jay Bates - Woodworking Videos

    You're very welcome. If you decide to build one feel free to stop by my website and submit some pictures to the viewer section and I'll feature them for you 🙂

  • chris mcguire

    It would been really good if you showed how to cut the angles on the legs that sit on the ground, So I was lost from step one.  other wise good video.

  • Ted Kreeger

    Jay, do you have a cut list for the 10foot pic nic table. I have your sketchup, but didnt see a cut list like you had for the 6 foot table, would really help, Thanks

  • Tim Coulter

    Although your table is strong….the boards at the ends just do not add to the looks…..i have been makeing them for over 10 years and are other ways to make them stronger

  • Ted Kreeger

    I agree Jay, Customer wants a 12', I just built the 6' with pressure treated, and that was a monster to move, I am going to try to get her to do 2 6' tables. Thanks Jay, you do some great stuff.

  • Luther Woodworks

    I really love this design. I think I may have found something that I can make and hopefully sell. I will, however wait until next year in early spring or make a couple over the winter. If i can find room in my garage to store them. And then when it warms up, see if there is any interest in them. I will post them on my facebook buy sell trade site and craigslist. I have a small child size picnic table and all of the corners are chamfered and mitered at 45 degrees. I may end up doing that to the ones I make.

  • Zandroval Yadao

    Jay, your genius has reached us here in Wellington New Zealand! Picnic table on Radiata Pine and finished in Redwood Oil. You're the man!

  • Arkansas Homestead

    I get a kick out of the Close Captions because it is to screwed up on the videos. He says also keep in mind, and the CC says Optimizing preachers here…rofl

  • Marvin Alford

    I like the plans and the video of course. I feel comfortable around power tools but don't have much experience past the basics. I hope to build a picnic table using your plans in the near future. I'll be staining my table using a spray gun. Do you recommend completely assembling the table first and then spray or spray the parts before assembly? The later seems easier but I was concerned about the gluing steps. Will the glue stick to the stained pieces? And I haven't used the TiteBond products before.

  • Steven Vieth

    Hey jay how much do you charge for these and about how long does it take ? Price for materials? I'm trying to get into stuff like this while in between seasonal job. I am watching all your videos too! Great stuff man!! Thanks

  • dolinick

    A friend of mine just tore down an old deck made of treated lumber. I have some aged 2×6 and a few 2×8 treated lumber . I think i have enough material to make 2 12 foot picnic tables! Yeah, he gave me about 16 twelve foot 2×6 boards and a couple of twelve foot 2×8 boards.

  • LuckyB

    that is a damn good build  I have been thinking about building a picnic table  just a little less than  work bench high ,, I enjoyed watching  and thanks for the Idea's

  • Edward Lancaster

    Hi Jay, I am from a small part of the uk (south wales) I would just like to say you are a ambassador to the average DIY,er, like me, the advanced DIY,er, and also to your established woodworker, all your work is explained to the finest detail with easy readable and detailed drawings, I spend hours watching your tutorials and have learned a lot from you,  THANK YOU, John

  • Francisco Gastardelli

    Olá amigo ,vc tem alguma coisa para sala ,conjunto com almofada de 2 e 3 lugares ,feito em madeira ,grato amigo feliz ano novo.

  • David Green

    Very well built, just one polite suggestion, to pre radius and sand all the components in the flat before assembly, save heaps of time, good job!

  • Jim Fleming

    Jay, is there any real difference between building a 6 foot table, or an 8 foot table? I too have a habit of over building things, and I like your style of table… I'll be building this one soon.

  • BoredAtWork2000

    Watching this video know is hilarious having seen your newer videos, shop, instruction, etc. it’s cool to see how you got started!

  • Bill Byrnes

    Thank you for the video, had to try this myself. Made it harder on me than need be though. Table top, six two by sixes, seats, two, two by sixes each side, eight foot long. Nice and stout, too heavy for one, maybe three guys. Thanks for inspiring me to go out and do something. Retired for two years now. Took most of the winter to complete, bad knees and all. You don't need me to tell you, keep up the good work. And thanks again.
