Convertible Picnic Table or Bench
This convertible bench – table is great when you are limited for space on a small deck or a campsite easily convert your bench into a picnic table or table into a bench whatever you need at the time. Made entirely from construction lumber or if you want to dress it up you may want to use cedar.
The overall construction of this project is quite basic but accuracy it very important. There has to be clearance while converting from table to bench or vice versa. It also has to sit level no matter how your furniture is being used.
I designed the project using ¾” dowel stock as pivot points, however you could easily use bolts and nuts as long as you recess the bolt head and locking nut.
In either position the table or bench sits at a normal height of approximately 19” from the ground for the seating and 30” from the ground which is normal table height. I have shown the fixture in different colors but that is just for clarity when viewing.
In either position the furniture piece will be handy and certainly a conversation piece with your family, friends and visitors.
Have fun – Impress your friends with your new bench
Is it a Table or a Bench 🙂
