I saw one of your other blogs on this interesting picnic table Ian and so I’m starting from the beginning. From a construction point of view this a pretty smart design which eliminates a lot of the cross bracing found in the usual designs.
I built a ‘regular’ picnic table for one of my sons 16 years ago out of Douglas fir. I didn’t use treated wood and it still looks almost like new to this day. It has been maintained well though with regular applications of outdoor oil finish and I think yours should do well too. Your main concern might be the laminated legs, but that might not be an issue with the right glue.
