    If you are a beginner or have done some woodworking you will find these plans easy-to-follow as the instructions are very clearly written

    The woodworking plans are straightforward so they are not complicated at all. Even if you are a total newcomer to woodworking you will simply be able to master all the techniques that are needed and the woodworking skills very quickly by following the concise and clear instructions.

    Another thing which is so great about these woodworking plans is that there have been some videos included and there are some to guide you in how to build benches home furniture dog houses bird feeders sheds and much much more.

    I dont have any plans to show but offer a suggestion or two.

    Exterior grade, probably treated material, more importantly not sheet plywood.

    Example: treated 2 x 4's at a length you wish the table to be IE: 8 ft.

    Working from the underside, after laying out the top, spaced at 1/4 inche apart perhaps, attach cross braces, not only to help support legs but probably tow other equally spaced places between the outer supports. Use galvanized decking screws at the appropriate length.

    Once the top is secure, flip it over and find the center of the 8 ft. draw a line across, and tap in a couple of finish nails.

    Get a piece of thin, flexible molding material, plastic or wood and curve it to form the arch of the oval from the center line to the ends. Draw a line on that arch, then do the same on the opposite end.

    Using a scroll saw cut on the arch/line, and sand the ends.

    I suggest further treating the wood, with Thompsons or similar material for longer durability.

    The legs can be as simple as 2x4's in an X pattern attached at their middle and tat the braces under the top. Across to each leg add a long cross brace to stabilize.

    I have plans from a book (Making Country Rustic Wood Projects, by Patrick Spielman), that contains plans for a round picnic table with curved trestle benches. A local library could have this book or others like it.

    If you are planning to start on your woodworking project, this isn't something you should use, it's something that you would be insane not to. Go here

    Truth is, I've been a carpenter for almost 36 years, and I haven't found anything like this for less than 10's of thousands of dollars.

    This is one of the best collection of plans I’ve seen:

    There is enough variety of projects in here, big and small, intricate and simple, and you can pick out new ones as you progress in your woodworking abilities.

    It’s a great feeling knowing you made something by hand. It’s always fun to show off your craftsmanship, and ladies love it too!
