An Appetizing Menu of Picnic Tables
For most of us, talk of picnic tables brings to mind the traditional wood, rectangular tables, with two long benches. Although this table is still quite popular, the picnic table has undergone a dramatic transformation in shape, style, and substance, which is slowly changing its image. This evolution has largely been precipitated by an increasing number of enclosed porches, patios, and gazebos, which are taking away the seasonal aspect of outdoor living. These days, people are using their picnic tables all year long, and expecting more out of them.
These new demands have produced spectacular results in the world of picnic tables. The choices today are virtually limitless, with picnic tables made from wood, metal and synthetic materials, in an expanding range of sizes and shapes. Indeed, there is quite a sumptuous menu of tempting selections. So, where do you find this cornucopia of picnic tables? Go to AllPicnicTables.com, where youíll see an awesome assortment of rectangular, oval, round, square, hexagonal, octagonal, and extra-wide picnic tables, made from western red cedar, pressure-treated southern yellow pine, #1 select pine, oak, teak, cherry, aluminum, thermo-plastic coated steel, polywood, and vinyl.
If you prefer a classic wood picnic table, western red cedar is beautiful and exceptionally durable. It has natural oils that make it resistant to insects and decay, and dimensional stability to prevent warping. It can be sealed and/or stained for preservation of its radiance, or allowed to weather naturally to a rustic gray. Either way, it will provide you with years of outdoor living pleasure.
Treated southern yellow pine, kiln-dried before and after treatment, is highly resistant to decay and warping. Ready to stand up to years of heavy use and harsh weather, it can also be sealed and stained once a year, or allowed to weather naturally.
For the most durable outdoor wood furniture, AllPicnicTables.com offers magnificent tables made from genuine, maintenance-free teak, which is inherently endowed with high concentrations of mineral deposits that make it thermally stable and naturally water-repellent and resistant to decay and warping. Teak can also be stained/sealed, or left untreated.
Eminently durable and attractive, vinyl picnic tables, made from vinyl-coated treated pine, can easily be cleaned with soap and water, and will bring you years of low-maintenance, high-performance enjoyment. Polywood, made from high-density polyethylene resins, looks incredibly like natural wood. Available in an array of spectacular colors, polywood picnic tables are maintenance-free and virtually indestructible.
At AllPicnicTables.com, you can also choose an aluminum picnic table, available in several lovely colors, that will never break, warp, chip, or rust, even if itís left outside all year long. There is also a selection of thermoplastic-coated tables, with galvanized steel understructures, that are available in a full spectrum of colors, and suitable for commercial use.
