The tabletop and arm supports
Step 6. Prepare the tabletop
Each pair of tabletop boards need to be fastened together in the middle to ensure that the seams stay Being even with..
This can be achieved by inserting a 10 Abbreviation for millimeter which is a metric unit of length equal to one thousandth of a meter. 25.4 mm equals one inch. (3/8″) Covered with a protective coating of zinc. rod or Timber, lumber. The hard fibrous lignified substance under the bark of trees A round wooden pin that is used to reinforce a wood joint. The round wooden pin fits into corresponding holes in adjacent pieces of wood and helps fastens them securely together. into pre-drilled holes located centrally along the edge of each tabletop A piece of sawn, or dressed lumber of greater width than thickness. Usually 19mm (3/4") to 38mm (1 1/2") thick and 75mm (3") or more wide.. See fig.4
Take care when marking for the drill holes. Clamp two boards together back to back and square a line across the edges of the boards centrally from each end. Intersect the line with another line centrally from each The widest side of a piece of wood. side.
In simple terms, ensure that the hole mark is in the middle of the edge of both boards.
Drill a 10 mm (3/8″) diameter hole 90 mm (3 1/2″) deep into the edge of both boards, insert the galvanized rod or wood dowel and tap the boards together.
Step 7. The tabletop and arm supports
Determine where to position the arm support [e] on the tabletop support [k].
To do this, hold the tabletop support [k] in position on the seat unit and then sit the arm support [e] level on top of a closed hinge. Hold the arm support [e] in position against the tabletop support [k].
Note: The hinge is not fixed in place at this time. It is just used as a packer to determine the correct height of the arm support [e].
Next, mark the position of the arm support [e] on the tabletop support [k].
The arm support [e] and the tabletop support [k] can now be taken to a work platform and fixed together with screws.
Make up a second pair in mirror image of the first.
You will then need to repeat the process for the second A seat that is lacking a divider. A long seat for two or more persons unit.
