Composite V. Natural Lumber
Composite lumber is a fully formed amalgamation of different pieces of wood. They bind strands, fibers, veneers, particles, and boards together with adhesives to form composite wood. It is more durable than natural wood, and some are marketed with lifetime guarantees. The type of wood you get for your DIY picnic table will make all the difference. Some great options are cedar, redwood, and douglas fir. Softwoods are weather-resistant and lightweight, making them perfect for DIY projects. For the legs of your picnic table, consider something like pressure-treated pine to increase durability. Wood that is in contact with the ground for extended periods should be pressure-treated to ensure longevity.
Other Products for Your DIY Project
You will need proper screws, a drill, clamps, carpenter squares, jigsaws, and paint brushes to put your project together. Don’t forget the wood glue! Our extensive catalog of hardware and tools will give you the supplies to build your picnic table. Staining your project is the last step after assembly. If you did not sand your wood before putting your table together, sand it before staining. Changing the color of your table requires a wood stain first, then the protective coating. Protective coatings are crucial for any woodworking project. Allow ample time between the multiple staining coats. Once the topside and edges are dry, flip the table over to stain the underside of your DIY picnic table. Finish with your protective coat, let it dry, and enjoy!
