2 piece convertible picnic table
Step 8. Fix the tabletop boards to the tabletop supports
Using the seat benches as work platforms, lay the tabletop supports [k] across the seat boards directly above, and in line with the base ends [d].
The tabletop supports [k] should then automatically be the right distance apart.
Position the tabletop boards [a] as shown in fig.6.
Ensure that the overhangs at both ends of the tabletop boards are equal and then screw the tabletop boards [a] to the tabletop supports [k] with 90mm (3 1/2") wood screws through pre-drilled holes.
Note: The spacings between the tabletop supports [k] for unit 1 will be different to that of unit 2.
When finished, the tabletop supports [k] on unit 1 must be able to fit between the tabletop supports [k] on unit 2. See the plans on page 7.
Step 9. Join the table to the seat
Hold each tabletop assembly upright in position on their respective seat units and mark the positions of the arm supports [e] on the seat boards [b]. See fig.7a.
Fold the seat over to the table position. With the end of the arm supports [e] on the mark, prop the table level and then fit the hinges making sure that the hinge screws have maximum hold.
