Family members and friends will enjoy the good times around this accommodating outdoor project that seats up to eight happy diners. There’s nothing tricky about the construction. Plugged exterior-grade screws and waterproof glue bond the 2-by parts together, guaranteeing years of use. A hole at the tabletop’s center allows you to insert an umbrella to shield diners from intense sunlight. The chevron-shaped benches attached to the cross supports allow for easy-access seating, unlike standard picnic table designs, which force you to climb over the seats to sit down. Passing the ketchup and mustard around the picnic table just got a whole lot easier with this table topper. Glue and splines hold the perimeter of the table frame together. A lazy Susan bearing hidden in a channel underneath allows for the rotation, while a hole in the center of the assembly accommodates an umbrella shaft. With the stock and bearing on hand, you can build the piece in an afternoon.
