Just completed the Octagon picnic table. I added a couple of features to mine, namely a center hole for an umbrella and support blocks around the center point under the table to lock in the umbrella post on the lower base. Finished it in time to have lunch AND dinner on it today. This took from Monday through Thursday morning for me, but some of that time was me waiting for supplies along the way. In reality, I think this can be built in one day, with paint/stain curing overnight and final set up on the morning of day two.
