Monthly Checkup: Fix the Picnic Table

    Remove loose tabletop boards and pull out the nails. Apply exterior-rated glue to the supports and put the boards back in place. Finish the job by securing them with 2 1/2-in. galvanized screws. For wobbly legs that cross in an x, or where legs meet cross bars, drill through the intersection with a 1/2-in. space bit and insert 3 1/2-in. long 1/2-in. bolts and flat washers. Cinch the nuts tight with a wrench and ratchet.
