This is the perfect table for large gatherings, campgrounds, or even restaurants with outdoor eating spaces, and big crowds. These tables can take whatever you throw at them, and are constructed with around 40% more wood than the leading competitor. We used the highest quality restoration forestry timber and build each piece by hand in our studio. There are no cheap materials or flimsy hinges here.
- Forever Picnic Tables are available in lengths from 4 to 14 feet to seat up to 18 adults comfortably.
- 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.
- Fast assembly. Sets ship in less than 15 parts. Tabletop and benchtops always ship assembled. Just add the legs and supports and enjoy your wood table.
Ordering is easy. Simply select your table in the drop menu and customize how you want it, with or without the detachable benches. We will get right on construction once we’ve nailed down your customized order, and can ship to anywhere in the Continental United States.

Specifications has the following sections, any of which you may go to directly by clicking on it:
DIMENSIONS & DRAWINGS
|Table Width (W):||30 inch.||36 inch.||42 inch.||48 inch.|
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 (L)||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 the 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.
STANDARD OR ADJUSTED LEG FLAIR
Standard Leg Flair – the leg flair for the Rectangular Picnic Tables is 47" at the ground. This is the traditional way picnic tables are built to give them supreme stability in any terrain. It is the most popular option by far. For example, if your tabletop is 36" wide, the standard leg flair will have the legs going out beyond the edge of the tabletop on both sides by 5 1/2".
However, some customers prefer to make this leg flair less wide, in order to accommodate unattached benches or chairs. If you prefer this option, just choose the Adjusted Leg Flair and we will reduce the leg flair width to the same as the width of the table.
Adjusted Leg Flair – in some rare cases it works better to have the leg flair less wide to avoid possibly bumping into the legs or if you are in a limited space. If you prefer this option, just choose Adjusted Leg Flair and we'll reduce the leg flair to match the width of the table.

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.
