Lumber stock sizes used in this project are 1x6 for the seats and table top and 1x3 for the legs, seat supports, table supports and brace

1x6 lumber usually machines (dresses, planes) down to approx 3/4" x 5-1/2".

1x3 lumber usually machines (dresses, planes) down to approx 3/4" x 2-1/2".

Pine is a typical lumber that can be used for this project. Untreated lumber can be used if the table is to be used indoors. If the table is to be left outside, choose a lumber that has a natural resistance to decay (doesn't rot easily) in preference to a pressure-treated lumber. The chemicals in some pressure-treated lumber can make for a potentially dangerous eating surface.

Your local lumber store can advise you on the available options.

The Instructions

Step one.   Cut all the pieces of lumber as per cutting list and drawing above.

Step two.   On an even surface make up the two end frames. To do this first lay the cross members (b) and (c), i.e. table and seat supports, flat on the ground and then lay the legs (a) in place on top. Ensure the seat/table supports and the legs are as dimensions shown in the 'end profile' diagram above. Fasten together using 4 1-1/2" wood screws at each intersection.

Step three.   Stand the two end frames up and fix the brace (d) in place using two 1-1/2" wood screws at each end. Ensure the brace is in the middle of the two end frames and flush with the top. This brace also acts as a spacer for the two end frames.

Step four.   Lay the remaining five boards, i.e. two seat boards (f) and three top boards (e), in place on top of the seat and top supports. Check that the overhang is equal at both ends and that all is square
Fix boards (f) to the seat supports (c) and boards (e) to the top supports (b). Use two 1-1/2" wood screws at each meeting.

Note:   For added strength, glue all joins before screwing.
Pre-drill the screw holes with a drill bit slightly smaller than the shank of the screw. This will stop possible splitting.

All done. Eazy with a "Z"
