Building your own picnic table can be a fun exercise and a great learning activity for adults and children alike. It is not too difficult although it is probably best not to expect perfection on your first try.
There are lots of great videos available to show you in a step by step way how you can build your own picnic table, although some woodworking experience and lots of tools are recommended.
Here is a great tutorial: How to build your own picnic table

We would estimate that you may need a budget of about £150 (presuming you have all the power tools) and a weekend to build it in.
As a warning though, a badly built picnic table can be dangerous and can result in quite serious injury if it should collapse.
