Heritage Large Redwood Tables are built with 12” slabs, giving them a huge flat surface for dining or crafts. They each seat up to 22 people, making them some of the largest one-piece wooden tables available, and by far the thickest when it comes to construction and wood use. You can order your table with or without benches, or customize it with a number of other detached seating options from our Forever Redwood online store.
- Seats up to 22 members of your family or guests with attached or unattached benches.
- Tailor it to your tastes easily with our Select Options - tabletop style, attached or unattached benches, bench styles, corner styles, umbrella holes, stains/sealants, etc.
- Materials to last a lifetime - our superior grade Old Growth Redwood outlasts cedar/teak, stainless hardware and the best weather resistant sealants.

DIMENSIONS & DRAWINGS
|Table Width (W)||30 Inch.||36 Inch.||42 Inch.||48 Inch.|
Tabletop widths are slightly narrower than the sizes listed due to the fact that each tabletop board is 1/4" less than 6" wide. So, instead of a standard 36" wide tabletop (the default setting), the 36" wide top with 6 boards shown in the drawing below is actually 34 1/2" W with a 30 1/2" H, and is 46 1/4" W without benches and 63" W with attached benches. The legs of the tables flare out to 46 1/4" W at the base/ground level.
Benches, whether attached or unattached, have a bench top width of 11 1/2" (see drawing below). Unattached benches have legs that flare out to 18 1/4" 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 (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.|
|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.

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.
