I am looking for plans for a regular size picnic table. I have built many of that that are for very small children. I have thought of just enlarging the small ones, but I have built all of the small ones from 2X4's and I don't think they will hold up to adults. My earliest ones are now getting old and the ultraviolet light of East Texas has gotten to most of them. Time to move up I guess.

I was hoping someone has a basic plan I could utilize.

Thank you very much

I no longer have the links, but when I built a new one about 4 years ago I was able to find quite a few free plans online just doing a Google search. In the end I just took measurements off the old rotten one I replaced and copied it so didn't end up using any of the plans I found but they're out there.

I saw a great plan for a picnic table in a woodworking magazine a few years ago. I haven't gotten around to building it yet, but I will dig it up tonight and let you know what magazine and issue.

OK, I found it. It is in Family Handyman March 2005. The article is "Rock Solid Outdoor Table and Benches."
