It was decided that an outdoor picnic table would do our large family a lot of good on these warm summer days, for sticky things like watermelon. Stephen, being without a job at the time, excepted the challenge. He went online and looked up some plans and talked them over with Andrew and Dad before starting. They gave him some slabs left over from the house building and helped him in their spare time. In two days, the menfolk were proudly showing off their new outdoor table to us. We love it!
We tried it out last night and; yup! It works!
Just the right width for arm wrestling too (that's important ).
