I've tried Googling "roundwood picnic table" but I tend to find "round picnic table made of wood" instead. Maybe plans just aren't something you find in the roundwood construction world but I should at least be able to turn up a few photos.
I guess I could probably slap a picnic table together on my own with a bit of trial and error, but it would be nice if I could learn from someone who's already been through that.

It cuts a very nice flat end tenon from 3/4" to 6" in diameter, and up to 6" long without moving the cutting head. By moving the head, I could make a 6" dowel nine feet long! I haven't used it much yet; just bought a small lot and am starting to build. I did make a lounge swing that adjusts alll the way down to a bed. I tried to upload pictures, but my 26kbs internet connection shut me off.

Besides Paul Redmond's suggestions, I took a quick peek at the blog Lenn mentioned in the first post and found this photo with what looks like a great picnic table in the background:
Maybe the guy at that blog might be able to create some plans/designs and sell them in addition to his furniture.
