Nail the table and seat support pieces to the legs.
The nails are to hold the frame together to enable drilling and bolting once the frame is removed from the template.

Pre-drill the nail holes in the support pieces to avoid splitting.
Use two 90mm (3 1/2") flat-head galvanized nails at each meeting.
Refer to the template plan for nail placement.
