"Rolling" Picnic Table
Steve Devaney, Merkel, Texas, made a picnic table out of an old horse-drawn cultivator. Even though it's made out of steel, it's easy to move.
  The table has an expanded metal top that's welded to a 4-ft. dia. steel wheel rim off the cultivator. The table's four legs are made from 2-in. dia. steel pipe and have another steel wheel rim welded to their bottom. The legs are fitted with four metal seats that mount on brackets made from pieces of 3/4-in. dia. sucker rod, which fit inside sleeves welded to the legs. The brackets are free to swivel inside the sleeves, allowing the seats to be swung from side to side.
  To move the table, Devaney removes the seat brackets from the legs, then turns the table onto its side and rolls it along the ground to the next location.
  "It weighs about 100 lbs. but because of the design it's easy to move," says Devaney. "The table also has a lot of nostalgia built into it. Every piece on it is at least 100 years old, and I think it'll last at least another 100 years."
