2 piece convertible picnic table

Note: This project is in both metric and imperial. All measurements are given in millimeters (mm) first, followed by feet and/or inches in brackets.
The metric sizes are not an exact match to the equivalent imperial sizes for practical reasons. A picnic table built using the metric measurements will be approximately 1.6% smaller than a picnic table built using the imperial (ft and in) measurements. The imperial measurements are more suited to North America. The metric measurements are more suited to Australasia.

About the wood measurements
This project is constructed out of dressed (surfaced or smooth) 150 mm x 50 mm (2" x 6") and 100 mm x 50 mm (2" x 4") wood.
Because this folding picnic table and bench seat combination is most likely to be left outside it is important to use stock that is suitable for exterior use.

The size (width and thickness) of the wood referred to in this project is the nominal size. However, because the wood is dressed (surfaced, smooth) the actual size of the wood will be less than the nominal size. For example: 100 mm x 50 mm (2" x 4") wood when dressed will have an actual size of approximately 90 mm x 45 mm (1 1/2"x 3 1/2"), and 150 mm x 50 mm (2" x 6") wood when dressed will have an actual size of approximately 140 mm x 45 mm (1 1/2" x 5 1/2").
Sizes can vary slightly from place to place but that should not be of too much concern for this project. The imperial measurements are more suited to North America. The metric measurements are more suited to Australasia.

because the metric sizes are not an exact match to the equivalent imperial sizes, use one system or the other. Do not mix and match.
