I'm 23 years old and am really just starting to try to learn to work with tools and wood. It has always interested me but my family was never really into it. Anyways, I'm going to try my luck on a picnic table soon for my apartments. Before that I was thinking I might make a little miniature table with cutouts for a ketchup bottle and salt and pepper shakers. Anybody have any idea of plans for it and what kind of wood I should use? I'll take any help I can get!

Mitchel, this is an excellent project. Plan on building a few because they are very popular. Dave(Dr Zook) was bugging me because he likes mayo on his burgers. I told him that sounded like a crappy idea and 2 weeks later he got the little outhouse in the mail.

Oops! You can build this out of most any wood. The ones you see are recycled from a real picnic table someone gave me.

That's a nice idea. I'll have to borrow that. I'll have to make mine a bit larger becausse I like mayo on my burgers, too. :p

Hi all: Make your own plans for almost anything. Google "SketchUp 8" is lots of fun with tutorials for us old folks. Download is free for the basic program (all I and my 8yr old grandson need)

Ah yes ! My usual sketch tool also. Add a ruler and square cause I can't draw a straight line without them. But it is fun to "play' on the computer for a change.

This photo may be of some help.

Thanks guys. I like the little outhouse, I might have to borrow that idea :) I was thinking I might use the leftover wood from the picnic table I'm going to build as well. I just need to get my hands on a table saw!

I'm very surprised that in your old age Bob you're actually telling people to spend money instead of making items. Regarding the $5.00 ones, are you sure they didn't say "made by Mike", I know that he was jigging up to make them.
