Bigger kids picnic table

I followed the plans to a T with this one. I wish I had made the seat supports longer so I could have the seats sit a little further from the table for bigger kids. I drilled a hole for the umbrella in the table top and the cross support. Sanded for hours, primed, and painted 3 coats. I will add feet to the legs so the legs aren't sitting flat on the ground, with the potential to rot. 

Took 2 hours to build, 2 hours to sand, and many hours to paint multiple coats. Very solid and should last a long time!
