Convertible picnic table/bench project

My sister asked for a picnic table to stick the grand kids at on nice days. I gave her that and a couple of benches to use when they are not around.

I used the vintage Ryobi Combo tool box set I picked up on Facebook.

  • Where did you find that Ryobi green?  
    By JDWatson, on December 15, 2018
    • It’s called Lazy Lizard from Behr.  I added about half a cup of ceiling white to the quart to lighten it up.

  • How does it stay level in the table position. 
    By Blindmonkey, on December 19, 2018
    • I put pins in two places on the rotating piece so it will stay in place. 
      By trooper866, on December 20, 2018

  • By the way, I think that’s a neat table concept.  
    By Blindmonkey, on December 19, 2018
    • And thank you.
