Tips for Selecting Outdoor Picnic Tables

What type of wood should I select for a picnic table?

Picnic table wood choice will be one of your most important decisions, outside of design. The best wood for outdoor picnic tables will come down to your aesthetic and durability preferences.

For those looking for a natural wood option, Thomas Steele used Ipe lumber for its picnic tables and benches. The inherent properties of this type of wood make it well-suited for outdoor use. It is generally resistant to rot, mildew, insects, mold and other common issues of outdoor furniture. However, these problems can come up if the table will be in a particularly shady and damp area. 

This wood will require some maintenance to keep up its appearance. Untouched, the wood will weather to a sliver-grey. But it is easy to restore to its more original coloring with some light sanding. Staining can also help hold it's color or used to achieve a more desired look.

In addition to Ipe, other woods such as Accoya, Ash, and Black Locust, may be an option on Thomas Steele products. Please use our live chat or contact form to inquire about these items. 

An alternative to natural wood lumber would be to select a recycled material for the picnic benches and tabletops. These boards are made from post-consumer recycled plastic containers and are made to resemble wood.

But what makes this wood a popular choice how much more durable they are compared to natural wood. Recycled plastic boards are impervious to rot, mildew, mold, insects. They also are resistant to graffiti and require almost no maintenance.

Aesthetically, recycled plastic will mimic the look of natural wood. But it does not replicate it. Being made from plastic, they will have a different feel as well. 

There are two options for recycled plastic on Thomas Steele products - Standard and Embossed. Embossed has a more pronounced wood styling and is patterned in Birchwood, Driftwood, Walnut and Mahogany grains.

Picnic Table Colors 

The metal components of picnic tables are powder coated and available in 16 standard colors. Custom colors are available upon request and do typically involve an additional cost. 

The natural color of Ipe is whiteish to light yellow. It can be stained to incorporate different colors. 

Embossed recycled plastic coloring follows it's wood type Birchwood (light grey), Driftwood (darker grey), Walnut (dark brown), Mahgony (redish-brown).

Standard recycled plastic coloring is brown, cedar, grey and weathered redwood. 

Note not all material options are available on all products. Please visit each picnic table product page to see the specific options for that model.
