Home-made: Flat pack, Plywood, Picnic Table plans

A couple of weeks ago it was the annual Fete and garden Party at my Church: St George's, Sprowston Road, Norwich.

My many duties on the the day included setting up, and then packing away the various; Tents, Marquees, Stalls and Picnic tables.

This is one of the Picnic tables used, it is a flat pack for storage picnic table made from a single sheet of 8 feet X 4 Feet X 3/4 inch thick plywood. All of the pieces slot together; assembly and disassembly only taking a minute or two.

Anyone who can use a; Jigsaw, tape measure, and a straight piece of wood for marking out can make one of these in about 1 hour, and I thought that it would be suitable for most of my fellow OTGer's to have in the garden, packing it away in the shed or garage for over winter storage.

Here it is laid out on the lawn:

and a couple of photos of it being assembled:

But best of all, I have found the layout plans and cutting list on the Internet.

So here is the link, to a set of downloadable PDF plans:

I just thought that I would let you all know, that I will be making between 6 and 10 of these flat pack picnic tables over the next 2-3 weeks.

I shall be using them at various exibitions, shows and events as advertising media, with the Cargo Cycles logo and contact details, along with the logos of other small businesses associated with Cargo Cycles painted on to the table tops and ends.

Look forward to the usual step-by-step photographs as I embark upon this project.
