One piece folding Bench and Picnic Table

Materials List

The measurements given are the actual sizes.

Enquire at your local building supplies store regarding the availability of the stock sizes given in the table below. If different sizes are used, then slight adjustments will need to be made to the length of the bolts (4 only) and also the length of the rear seat boards and tabletop boards. Go to page 8 for details.

Sourcing the stock sizes
This project calls for two stock sizes - 90 mm x 45 mm (1½" x 3½"), and 90 mm x 32 mm (1¼" x 3½").
Both stock sizes are available in Australasia. In North America 90 mm x 45 mm (1½" x 3½") stock is widely available and 90 mm x 32 mm (1¼" x 3½") stock can be ripped out of 5/4 in. x 6 in. deck boards found at both Lowes and the Home Depot.
Ideally, if you can source or obtain both stock sizes all the better, but if you can only source the 90 mm x 45 mm (1½" x 3½") stock which is more widely available, then some changes to the plans would need to be made. Go to page 8 for details.
