Okay, maybe not.

In anticipation of our biennial Pig Out, I’ve constructed a picnic table from a free online plan. Of course, I made a few modifications and added my own touches to it, but by and large, it’s the classic design that most of us grew up with.

Things become ‘classic’ for good reasons, they endure because they work and have broad popularity. In this case, we have a strong, sturdy piece that can be made from readily available construction lumber with minimal skill and tools. It is also accommodates everyone, from tall people to small dogs.

As is usual, the simpler the better. But the best thing about this project is…

It’s finished.

Cheers
Tom

Hey Tom,
It looks great!
Wish I could make the Pig Out!
You are pretty far away from me. :(
Google says 2345 miles! :shock: :-?

You've got plenty of time, Zulu. I've got lots of room on the lot to park your camper! (grin)

Hey Zulu,

Looks like you can make it in 35hrs., if there's no traffic. :wink:

Cheers,

There isn't anything on a pig that I won't eat. Save me an ear! :razz:

Hey Zulu,

I'd save both for you, but they'd be raw. We remove the head and trotters in order to get 65Lbs pig into the box.

Cheers,
Tom
