I was thinking about purchasing a picnic table from a box store for $100. I went to the store to pic it up and they had a display out and after looking at it I knew I could build it myself for a fraction of the price. I purchased the lumber, took it home and started building it with my Ryobi lith kit. All I needed was my circ saw, impact gun, screws and a speed square. In about an hour I was done. The next day I used a torch and lightly burned the wood to give it a rustic look. The whole project cost me $42.
