The last job I did in Tulsa, the lady gave me this redwood picnic table. It was needing some repair. She said her son made it in shop class 60 years ago. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and say 50. Anyway, one table leg needed fixed along with a bench leg. I got the table saw out today and grabbed the pieces of redwood I had stashed. Made the new legs and added a few screws to tighten things up. Maybe it will last another 50!

I'm sure it has seen many repairs over the years! Now for some redwood stain!

I'm hoping for the best! I have nearly gotten a sunburn at Thanksgiving around here before!

All I know is that the bikes were out yesterday, and it's snowing today.

Not bad for the end of November around here.

Not to bad here yet for the nearing the end of November. We have had bad snow storm by now some years.

Nice fix on the picnic table. Noel.

I had a pair of benches and a table just like those I picked up at an auction.  Used them one year and got rid of them.  Benches were real unstable as the legs were to close together cross wise.  Red wood is to soft and does not hold screws well at all and much end to end movement and the whole table was loose.  Bought one with the seats on 4 sides.  Steel tube frame and hardwood for wood.  That sits on wood blocks during the summer outside and in the basement through the winter.  I wish you luck with yours but be careful when a couple adults are on a bench.

use them year round! BBQing and carrying on is not a seasonal activity...
