Custom Made, Large Thru-Bolt Picnic Tables

These picnic tables are built to be family heirlooms. This table is made from California con common incense cedar and designed to accommodate 15 adults. The wrap-around attached benches are a unique feature to my thru-bolt picnic tables. They're 15 inches deep and can hold off the shelf chair cushions for comfortable seating hours at a time. My tables are built in any size, shape or thickness for that to-scale look that's missing with most out door dinning tables. The table shown is 135" long by 83" deep by 31" high. The tabletop is 39"X92" The child seat is optional and can be built for one or two kids. Two PIP-B (person in progress-bench) shown. All picnic tables are one of a kind that are built one at a time and will need to be quoted accordingly. Price range is 1,150.00 to 5'600.00 Table shown has zinc coated carriage bolts and goes for 1'800.00 or 2'200.00 with stainless steal carriage bolts. Available in Redwood, Cedar and reclaimed timber.

About thru-bolt construction

When we think of woodworking, we think of either nails or wood screws to connect the pieces. However, a through-bolt provides greater strength and stability by going all the way through and held in place with a nut on the other side. It's what the great carriage builders used until metal and welding became common. I used 130 thru-bolts on the table shown.
