New Spruce "Easy In" 8' Picnic Table -

Imagine an 8' picnic table that you can sit at without having to lift your legs over the seat in any part of the table! This is important if you are elderly, sore back or knee issues, or handicapped with wheelchair (on the ends of table) with plenty of room!

Fully balanced (cannot tip over), trimmed (all the corners are angled and sanded), coated lifetime decking screws (no nails), zinc plated carriage bolts, sanded tops on table, and fully stack-able too! (2" Umbrella hole -add $4)

Local Delivery $40 ea. Call show contact info (texting - yes)

Here is what I noticed with my competition on craigslist:

1. If it doesn't say 3" deck screws...it isn't. It is probably nailed together. That means that as the table "flexes" when you sit down, those nails will eventually work themselves loose and become a rickety table.

2. The top boards need to be gapped from about 1/4". This will prevent rotting when the boards are "butted up" to each other and the moisture is trapped between boards. I also screw a 1.5 inch wooden strip on each end of the top for support.

3. The bottom of the legs need to extend to at least the center of the seats, not short of ....or your table may tip backwards when you sit down. The very bottom piece under each leg on the ground is pressure treated to prevent rotting.

4. The tops and seats should not be made with pressure treated lumber. Why? Pressure treated is designed to protect against moisture...not the sun. What this means is that the top and seats will eventually "curl" at the top surface dries while the backside is wet. Eventually, (unless painted or stained heavily immediately) this will look terrible.

5. New pressure treated lumber is also poisonous ....if you get a nasty splinter, watch out!

6. In my opinion, every outside corner should be trimmed (so no one will hurt themselves by bumping a corner).

7. If you choose to paint your table, be sure to go over every knot (or the whole table) with an exterior primer sealer 1st. This will prevent or severely reduce the knots from "bleeding" through the soon applied "decking - not siding" paint (Good for 8 - 10 years or more with a quality brand).

8. If you stain your table, use a "decking" stain. Full color last almost twice as long (5 - 8 years) as a semi transparent stain (3 - 5 years), but the semi looks nicer (you can see the grain of the wood). Spraying it on looks great, but you loose over 50% of it in the air, while a brush doesn't.

9. If you are considering "Thompsons Water Seal", you need to treat your table every 12 months. Why? All this does is coat the table with a wax substance as the protectant...and it slowly wears down in that time period.

Remember - The top and seats are sanded smooth - this table is "unfinished" and ready for stain or paint! I've seen my tables last to 30 years (or more)!

Choose your table wisely!
