The benefits of buying a Redwood Picnic Table from Forever Redwood are immense, but one of the ones we’re most proud of is our commitment to the environment. We build our tables and products with 100% restoration forestry lumber, ensuring minimal effect on the California Redwood population. We also pride ourselves on our meticulous construction and design standards, which you can see and feel in each one of our Redwood Picnic Tables.

- Each table is handmade per your instructions. Choose your length, tabletop width, corner styles, umbrella hole and other options to make the table just the way you'd like.
- Materials to Last a Lifetime - extra thick Redwood outlasts cedar or teak. We use only stainless hardware and the best weather resistant sealant.

DIMENSIONS & DRAWINGS
Tabletop boards are 5 3/4" W, this is why the widths run in 5 3/4" increments. Picnic tables have a default Height of 30 1/4". Any of the dimensions shown can be altered if you require a custom height or width. Just let us know.
If the table is going to be used for meals, there is a common upgrade often made that you should be aware of:
If you plan to place food platters on the table, a 36" W tabletop is a bit narrow to hold both food platters and provide enough space for place settings on both sides of the table. Also, if you'd like to have comfortable place settings on the ends of the table that do not conflict with someone sitting on the side corners. Adding an extra 6 or 12 inches (to a 42" or a 48" W tabletop) not only creates the space in the center for the food platters, but also creates a place setting on both ends of the table. As far as useful space, you create more by adding a foot in width than a foot in length.
Benches, whether attached or unattached, have a bench top width of 11 1/2". Unattached benches have legs that flare out to 17" at base/ground level. If you choose end tables with your set, they are built 6" shorter than the width of the table to ensure the benches don't bump into the side benches when used close to the table. Just let us know if you'd like something different.
Bench top, Tabletop and leg boards are 1 7/8" thick. All tables over 8 'L have legs made with 2 7/8" thick timbers for proper support. All tables over 10' L have 3 sets of legs for proper support. The 10' table is usually made with just 2 sets of legs, but if you'd like a third set of legs, just let us know in the comment section at checkout (no extra charge).
The following table weights were calculated using the default 36" tabletop width in Redwood. Douglas-fir weighs approximately 20% more:
|Table Length||Number of Adults Who Can Dine Comfortably (Based on a std. 36" width table)||Approx. Weight Table Alone||Approx. Weight Table with Benches|
|Side Benches Only||Add End Benches|
|4-Ft||4||6||100 lbs.||160 lbs.|
|4.5-Ft||6||8||110 lbs.||175 lbs.|
|5-Ft||6||8||125 lbs.||185 lbs.|
|6-Ft||8||10||150 lbs.||210 lbs.|
|7-Ft||8||10||170 lbs.||240 lbs.|
|8-Ft||10||12||190 lbs.||270 lbs.|
|10-Ft||12||14||230 lbs.||330 lbs.|
|12-Ft||14||16||300 lbs.||410 lbs.|
|14-Ft||16||18||340 lbs.||460 lbs.|
Seating estimates by length of table vary slightly depending on the selected seating configuration (adding End Benches generally adds 2-4 additional seats depending on table width). The Forever Picnic Bench (with flared leg) is the default style of bench used. If you'd like a different style, please see the option offered under Advance Options.
ADA ACCESSIBILITY DESIGN
ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG)
4.32.2 Seating. If seating spaces for people in wheelchairs are provided at fixed tables or counters, clear floor space complying with 4.2.4 shall be provided. Such clear floor space shall not overlap knee space by more than 19 in (485 mm) (see Fig. 45).
4.32.3 Knee Clearances. If seating for people in wheelchairs is provided at tables or counters, knee spaces at least 27 in (685 mm) high, 30 in (760 mm) wide, and 19 in (485 mm) deep shall be provided (see Fig. 45). 4.32.4* Height of Tables or Counters. The tops of accessible tables and counters shall be from 28 in to 34 in (710 mm to 865 mm) above the finish floor or ground.
OPTION 1 - With both benches trimmed
OPTION 2 - With one bench trimmed
OPTION 3 - With benches a full size on both sides
With benches a full 8’ on both sides, a wheel chair does have enough room to fit at either end of the table as long as no one sits near the edge. But if you want to make sure that this space is always available, then we should trim at least one of the benches on one end of the table.
Assembly Instructions for: Forever Picnic Tables (Attached Benches)
All You Need is a Few Tools and a Friend.
Assembly is best done by two people and usually takes about half a day to a day, depending on size. Pergolas need a ratchet wrench, a hammer and a ladder to put them together. In some cases, you might need a drill to attach the posts into concrete. As with all our products, we preassemble pergolas in our shop to ensure everything fits together. All hardware is included and all parts are clearly labeled before it is shipped. We also include detailed step-by-step instructions.
Take a look at our assembly instructions below for specific details. If you plan to pour concrete to hold the posts, the project will require an additional half day prior to assembly. Please do the concrete pour a few days prior to assembly to allow the concrete to cure.
Special talent is not required to re-assemble our pergolas. But, if you would like help, just let us know. We have our own team for installations in California, Nevada and Southern Arizona and a network of local contractors we recommend for farther afield.
Care: Your Forever Redwood Furniture will last for decades in year-round weather without maintenance.
Depending on the wood grade you choose, even with harsh year-round outdoor conditions, you can expect your furniture to last from ten to forty years without maintenance of any kind.
Being outside year-round is rough on any woods finish. The surface absorbs UV rays, pollution, constant variations in moisture and temperature and it also oxidizes. This is why most wood just doesn’t hold up and the surface color slowly changes towards a silver patina over the years. But, with Forever Redwood, you don’t have to worry. The silver patina is surface deep only (less than 1/64") and is not indicative of decay. Your set will last decades and is not compromised in any way by the surface color change. For example, we keep our display items as is without refinishing to show off this natural aging (we like the patina!).
Although Forever Redwood is maintenance-free, we recommended you take a few minutes as needed to clean by either hosing down and/or brushing/dusting away accumulated debris (no soap or chemicals needed). If you’d like to keep your set looking its best for decades, please go to: Care and Finish.
