Portable Picnic Table Seats 30 At A Time
"Every time there was a neighborhood gathering, we'd spend half the day gathering picnic tables and then returning them," says Gary Reyhons, Mt. Verson, Iowa, who decided to solve the problem by building a 20-ft. long portable picnic table that rides on its own set of wheels.
"It was a challenge to come up with a design that makes it easy to raise and lower it. It tows behind a car or pickup. When we reach our destination, we slip the tongue off so no one trips over it, and the wheels slip off each side by simply pulling a couple pins, lowering the table to the ground.
"We built it by using two picnic table kits together with 20-ft. long treated boards. It seats 30 people at a time.
"We call it the ŠPort-A-Pik-Nik' and it's already been used a number of times this summer."
