If you have a small space or you just don't want to see a picnic table in the middle of your yard, here is a great solution.
This project folding picnic table plans from construct101 is the perfect project for this weekend. The free blueprints come with a free PDF download. The plans are complete with lots of details that include step-by-step drawings, material list, and a cutting list.
The picnic table folds and turns into a set of benches. The benches can be set up in many ways, if you are short in space they can be set against a wall or fence.
The table or benches is simple to build. The tools are common, no special tools will be required. This picnic table is built using only 2x4's, two hinges, and wood screws. The time to complete this project is one day.
