This is a great scrap wood project and can be made with a variety of wood that you have on hand. We used 1×3 lumber, but it’s easy to adjust.

You can stain or paint your tiny DIY picnic table or leave it natural. Whatever matches your style!

We originally built the picnic bench as a squirrel picnic table, and enjoy drinking our coffee every morning and watching the squirrels. But it also works perfectly for Luke’s toys and stuffed animals! If you want a modern way for your kids to have a tea party, this project is right for you.
