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!
