    Default convertible picnic table/bench - very fun project!

    Larry and I made this awesome picnic table that converts into a bench for the deck. Pretty fun project and just the right size for 2-3 people.. It is not as big as a regular sized picnic table.

    Very nice. Would be a great design for a spot with a view. Looks like it could all be cut to size, carried in on an atv, and then put together on-site for the harder to reach spots. Thanks for posting.

    This is the link for the plans.

    They are for metric lumber (australia, I think)...but there are direction for making the proper conversions on just a couple of the boards. We used all 2x4 (studs) and they worked fine with the adjustments.

    I will forewarn folks... these plans are sometimes confusing - the directions are for one side - and then it is up to you to do the reverse for the other side. Measure four times, check four times, before you commit to drilling holes or cutting. LOL We made it without having to cut any new pieces, but at times I felt like I was seeing quadruple.

    It is a nice bench when all done.
