the timber

Wood (in inches) used in this project is: 1x6 (seats and tabletop) and 1x3 (legs, seat supports, table supports and brace).

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

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

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