Reclaimed Wood Flat-Pack Picnic Table With Planter/Ice Trough by Quite the Contrary – Instructables

Quite The Contrary has made a work of art in this reclaimed wood, flat pack picnic table with planter.  The description is great and lucky you – it’s on Instructables so you can make one for yourself!

All the wood in this project is reclaimed except for the table legs, which were purchased from Discount Builder’s Supply in San Francisco.  As always, the design was influenced by the materials: we would have made the slats go lengthwise, but most of the beautiful pieces of reclaimed redwood we had were short, so they’re widthwise instead.

At the time we made this table, we didn’t have access to a jointer or planer, so we sanded our reclaimed wood with palm sanders.  The whole project took us about a week, but it would take far less time with a jointer and planer.
