Default Folding Picnic Table

No promises but this might be my next project. My sweetie likes it, so...

Actually, I have already bought the plans, printed them out and generated a cutlist. So, I guess there really isn't anything stopping me, 'cept me!

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

After your San Antonio birthday vacation you have to get back to work.

Anxious to see some pictures. Wifey saw a version of that on the internet and decided she would like one also. Are you doing the version that is all 2x4? Did the plans include all the hardware you need?

Yes sir to all questions.
There are a couple of sizes that need to be adjusted (which I have already done). And the bolts need to be longer.

I am going to use all treated pine 2x4's from the big box store. Ten in all with very little scrap left over.

Note: From looking at the pics posted, the cut list must be pretty accurate. I haven't read of any complaints.

I don't normally build anything straight from someone else's plans so this is a first.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
