I'm looking for plans to build either a round or hexagon picnic table with integral split seating so no one needs to climb over anything. So far my search has brought up many acceptable photos, but no plans.

Plans???

Aren't they in your head?

I'll never use plans seems like cheating and if it doesn't come out exactly makes you look pretty stupid!!!

Cut 6 of the same seats and build a table around it measurements should be the same!!!

I don't think using plans is cheating at all, in fact with the cost of materials these days who can afford to do something wrong and start over.
It's really about how comfortable a person is and their level of skill. I've built things just from photos but still had to do a lot of layout work and drawing etc..That in itself is not easy.

Try looking at Rockler or Wood magazine I know they have plans, maybe not exactly what you are looking for though. Either way, good luck! I hope you find what you're looking for.
Also don't forget to post pictures when all is said and done. :thumbsup:

If you have good photos you should be able to sketch out all of the plan that you need for a project like this. Just use some quad ruled paper to make the sketching easier.

Here is the table I'd like to build. Seems like if someone has done the planning to draw up some plans and a material list, it would save me a couple hours and the experimenting with developing comfortable distances between top of bench to top of table from ground and how much space from inside of bench to outside of table, etc. I could grab measurements for me and then find everything too high and far apart for my lady. Plans are nice.
