One piece folding Bench and Picnic Table
Step 3. Make the front side-frames
Assemble the two front side frames. Make one to the dimensions shown in the drawing below.
Make up the second in the same way but as a mirror image of the first.
Special care should be taken for the following......
When piece [a] is 30 degrees off right angles to piece [g] (as in the picture), ensure that the arm rail [i] is tucked up firmly under the table rail [g], and also that the top of the arm rail [i] does not encroach into piece [a] by more that 18 mm (¾"). See the insert in the drawing below.
The end of the arm pad [j] should be touching the table rail [g].
The arm pad also acts as a brake to contain the unit from spreading out too far.
Fix together with screws and glue.
