Welcome to The Picnic Butler
Australia's premier source for picnic tables and other picnicky items.
Our Picnic Tables are all individually hand-crafted in Australia, using responsibly-sourced local hardwood timber. With a high-quality finish, and robust design, these tables will be a centerpiece for your picnics throughout the year. Perfect for use at the beach, in the park, at music festivals, sunset cinema outings, sports events and much more.
The Picnic Butler uses Hevea, Merbau, Acacia, Karri, Tasmanian Oak and Eucalyptus hardwood composites to give a range of colours and grains to suit your personal preference. The timber is carefully chosen from repurposed wood, cut, routed, sanded and finished to give a long-lasting, weatherproof, quality table that will last you for years.
The Picnic Tables are designed with fold-up legs that allow you to easily carry them to and from your picnic site. The legs lock into place when opened, ensuring a steady surface for your snacks and drinks, even on uneven ground and picnic blankets.
We have table designs that accommodate six-, four- or two-drink holders, with combinations of wine-glass holders or beer holders, as well as a lockable cheeseboard insert option.
Our tables feature leather carry handles, and jute-twine wrapping on the legs to add those special touches that make each table unique and personal.
Attention To Detail
We only put our logo on tables that are checked to the highest level of quality, so that you can be assured of a long-lasting complement to your future picnics and outdoor activities.
You can choose from a number of beautiful Australian hardwood varieties - all our timber is carefully and responsibly sourced, and quality is always a priority for us. Options are:
With a lovely pale natural colour, we apply only a clear varnish to highlight the light grain variations.
The variations in the Tasmanian Oak composite wood we use ensures that no table ever looks the same. The oak wood finishes to a beautiful golden hue.
Acacia eucalyptus hardwood has golden and warm brown tones, and is the lightest of the woods we use.
Made from a variety of Eucalyptus types, this composite wood has a reddish undertone, whilst still having beautiful natural grain variations
Karri is a reddish eucalyptus wood with little natural colour variation, and makes for a wonderful warm look in sunlight.
A beautiful dark chocolate wood, Merbau is a very hard wood and has a fantastic exotic look.
Customise Your Table
Our mini Picnic Tables have a number of customisations that allow you to personalise your table - you will find these options in our store:
The Patent-pending design of our table inserts allows you to lock and unlock a cheeseboard into the table - when you remove the insert to fit the ice-bucket it can be used as a serving or cutting board. For red-wine lovers simply lock the cheeseboard back in place, and you have more space for your snacks.
We offer a special engraving service; your message can be engraved on a beautiful brass or silver plate, and inlaid in the table surface - perfect for gifts or commemorating a special occasion.
If you have a special idea for personalising your table, we'd love to hear from you - our woodwork experts love a challenge!
Our love for the wonderful outdoor life Australia is blessed with, includes having picnics throughout the year as we enjoy visiting beaches, parks, music festivals and outdoor movies. With small kids and doggies around, sometimes things got knocked over, and we looked to modify a little table we had made to prevent this - and the Picnic Butler was born!
Our original table was made for personal use, but due to the interest generated and passersby asking where they could get one, we decided to make more, and launched The Picnic Butler in January 2018.
Since then hundreds of our tables have found homes all over the world, and continue to be a feature of picnics and special occasions year round.
We'd love to hear from you with any photos, suggestions or feedback, so please feel free to contact us at any time.
