This is part 2 of 3 in the series ‘How to Make a Picnic Table’. To review part 1 click ‘How to Make a Picnic Table’. This article examines the easiest techniques to finish the logs and prepare for final assembly of your new, one of a kind log picnic table.
After you have rough cut your log using your chainsaw the next step in the process is to begin finishing your ‘slabs’ and preparing them for stain and final assembly. This can be accomplished using a variety of saws including a hand-held circular saw, a table saw, or even a band saw.
Before cutting the log slabs however, the first thing you will need to do is to take time to arrange the logs. Look along the edge of each slab to determine which will become the outer edge of your picnic table. It is entirely up to you to choose what looks best and remember to consider the finished dimensions you seek. The standard picnic table in our ‘Cabin Collection‘ measures in between 66″ – 70″ long and 32″ -36″ wide.
