    I paid for the plans of the picnic table and there is no download area on your website ! Just a bunch of adds not related! Really poor for selling something as simple as a set of plans! You are being bombarded and that is not fair to you!

    Solid plans. Comes with handy material list, multiple angles of cuts and assembly. Exactly the quality I was hoping for 🙂

    Also, regarding the other review from Bill Ley, I am assuming they did not know where to look. To download the plans I clicked on My Account up at the top, then I clicked the Downloads tab, and clicked on the link under the Download column.

    I think I have a problem. I hope you can help me. I need measurments in meters or centimeters. Thanks for the help.

    It looked to be a nice project with good table, however the plans leave a lot to be desired. I emailed with my concerns and never received a response. Here is my complaint. The legs on the bench are cut at almost 18″ then add in the 1.5″ bench material and your bench height is over 18′ tall… which turned out to be a great bench height. The issue here is the table legs are cut at 30″, once angled it’s more like 27″… so between the top of the bench and the bottom of the table you have about 10″. Legs can barely fit under the table… and the overall table height is too low at less than 30″. If you follow the plans, you’ll cut all your lumber to the cut list and then realize the issue once it’s assembled… leaving you with an unusable table and requiring you to go by more 2×6 material to cut new table legs… disassemble the table, drill holes trying to line up to the original holes in the cross bracing etc… total pain in the @ss.

    Aside from that, the table top really should be 6 boards wide vs 5 as 5 just isn’t quite enough room for people to eat at with food pots/pans/trays/bowls in the middle and enough room for each person and their plates too. Think about it… 5.5″ x 5 boards it 27.5″ and plates are at least 10″ so people sitting opposite of each other will have 7″ between their plates assuming each plate is all the way at the edge of the table. That doesn’t leave enough room for a plate of burgers or a bowl of whatever if you want to eat using the table. Not much thought into this whole plan… I wasn’t impressed and was expecting a better product.

    I stored my table and benches covered under a tarp for the winter… both of them bowed/sagged in the middle so they are now upside down on the concrete floor trying to straighten them out and brace them better. April… you failed on this one. While it didn’t cost much, it’s the principle of it… if you are going to put such shoddy plans out there you shouldn’t actually charge money for them… your design flaw with the table height cost me more in lumber than the actual plans cost… meaning you and your half baked plans wasted my money on replacing lumber for table legs that were too short.

If you follow the plans, you’ll first cut all your lumber to the cut list, and then realize the issue once it’s assembled… leaving you with an unusable table and requiring you to go buy more 2Ă—6 material to cut new table legs… disassemble the table, drill holes trying to line up to the original holes in the cross bracing etc… total pain in the @ss.

    Aside from that, the table top really should be 6 boards wide vs 5, as 5 just isn’t quite enough room for people to eat at with food pots/pans/trays/bowls in the middle and enough room for each person and their plates too.

That doesn’t leave enough room for a plate of burgers or a bowl of whatever if you want to eat using the table. It can work with 2 people, but if you fill up the bench on either side you won’t have enough room on the table. Not much thought into this whole plan… I wasn’t impressed, and was expecting a better product.

    Lastly, I stored my table and benches covered under a tarp for the winter… all three of them bowed/sagged in the middle so they are now upside down on the concrete floor trying to straighten them out and brace them better.
