When using our picnic table this past summer, I always thought it would be nice for my son to have a smaller table to see his food better. I had some left over 2x6s from the picnic table, cedar boards from the pizza oven and 2x4s from the garbage shed. I figured it was probably enough, or very close to enough to build a small picnic table.

Using the same general concept of the larger table, I made a smaller version around 20” wide and 4’ long. I alternated 2×6 and 2×4 boards on the seat to give a little more depth and I had the 2x6s to use. 🙂

I had enough pressure treated for the top and seats, but that was it. Luckily I had some shorter 2×4 cedars and a 2×6 cedar board. That was exactly enough for the base.

Love the look of this picnic table, but more importantly, my son loves it.
