Here is what I noticed with my competition on craigslist:

1. If it doesn't say 3" coated 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... or there are so many nails, you cannot even rebuild it to replace a board if needed long term. My tables, the boards are easily replaced if needed.

2. The top boards need to be gapped about 1/4"to prevent rotting. My competitions boards are "butted up" to each other and the moisture is trapped between boards to rot.

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 (like some of my competition!).

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" as the top surface dries while the backside is wet. Eventually, (unless painted or stained heavily in 6 months) this will look terrible. A perfect example of this is the picnic tables at McDonalds in Belchertown, MA. All 3 are rickety and curled up badly...and they're not that old!

*Note - If New Pressure Treated is stained or painted immediately, it will soon peel off from the excess chemicals trying to drain from the new treated wood, leaving a mess. Wait 4 - 6 months to secure adhesion on new exposed Pressure Treated. Just giving you a "heads up". On occasion, a few customers insist on 100% Pressure Treated Tables. Add 25% cost if you insist that I build you one. It also makes your table a whole lot heavier.

5. New pressure treated lumber is also poisonous. If you get a nasty splinter, take it out ASAP!

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 - 12 years or more with a quality brand). I am told a quart can do up to an 8' table.

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 lose over 50% of it in the air, while a brush doesn't (do the underside first, then flip over & blend any runs when doing the top next). If you choose pine legs, be sure the bottom of the feet get coated very well to resist rotting from the ground.

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 - these tables are "unfinished" and ready for stain or paint! I've seen these tables last to 30 years (or more)!

Be sure the length you order is the length you want (check area with a measuring tape) *Note - the width of every table (seat to seat) is about 56". The height is about 30". Choose your table wisely!
