One piece folding Bench and Picnic Table

Step 2. Make the rear seat side-frames

The picnic table side frames Assemble both rear seat side-frames. Make one to the dimensions shown in the drawing below.

Fix horizontal pieces [d] and [e] to pieces [b] and [c] with screws and exterior wood glue. Use 3 screws per meeting. Pre-drill the screw holes through the horizontal pieces.

Make up the second in the same way but as a mirror image of the first.

Ensure that the bottoms of pieces [b] and [c] and the horizontal pieces [d] and [e] are parallel.

Temporary fix [c1].   Piece [c1] is a back stop. It stops the tabletop going down too far when the table is folded into bench seat mode. Temporary place it for now. Hold it in place with only one screw until all the mechanism is working and the folding motion has been tried. A slight adjustment may then be required.
