the timber

Timber (in millimetres) used in this project is: 150x25 (seats and tabletop) and 75x25 (legs, seat supports, table supports and brace).

150x25 timber usually machines (dresses, planes or gauges) down to approx 140x20.

75x25 timber usually machines (dresses, planes or gauges) down to approx 65x20.

Pine is a typical timber that can be used for this project. Untreated timber can be used if the table is to be used indoors. If the table is intended to be left outside, choose a timber that has a natural resistance to decay (i.e. doesn't rot easily) in preference to a pressure-treated timber. The chemicals in some pressure-treated timber can make for a potentially hazardous eating surface. Your local timber supplier can advise you on the best available options.

Take notice of the drawings below and then follow the step by step instructions listed afterwards. You can also go to helpful stuff for more helpful tips.
