How to build a sturdy picnic table
Step 3: Place the legs
Place the picnic table legs in the template as shown in the picture and also in the template plan.
The legs should fit neatly into place provided they were cut according to the cutting list plan.
Step 4: Place the support pieces
Lay the seat and table support pieces (horizontal members) in place on top of the legs.
Refer to the template plan for placement measurements.
Step 5: Nail the end frame
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.
