The self-contained table and bench design provides plenty of seating capacity in a relatively small area. The table is under 7' wide from bench to bench, with a table top that is 4-1/2 feet in diameter, to provide over 16 square feet of table top space. Additionally, the top sports an optional decorative ring around the edge, a feature not found in many picnic tables. The plan folds out to a substantial 38" x 25" blueprint, and includes a bill of materials, cutting diagrams, professional measured drawings, and detailed instructions with in process photographs. All lumber for this project was specifically chosen to be common construction grade sizes, so anyone can easily find it at a local "home" store. This feature, and the fact that you could build this table with a nothing more than a hand-held circular saw, make it an ideal project for woodworkers of any skill level. Build one for your family, or build them for friends.

    Octagon Picnic Table Plan

    Love the design, but cannot figure out best use of materials - ie. how to cut up the 10' boards and 8' boards to get the best us out of them.

    Great Plan

    These plans are good. The angles are not hard to do if you can understand a little math.

    thanks for the help

    Received this plan a few weeks back. When I got a chance to read through I was a little confused by the geometry involved in the project. [...]

    It is a great plan!

    It is a great plan. Easy to follow and has a great cut list. I substituted composite decking for the table top and seat. It increased the weight of the table by a third but I think the support frameing can handle it. Only time will tell for sure.
