Lay the tabletop and bench top boards on their respective frames ensuring all overhangs are equal and there is a slight gap (1/4") between all boards to allow for water run off.
Mark for screw placement, in line with the rails and about 25mm in from the sides of the boards. Refer to the drawing below.
Take the boards off and drill the screw holes - the same size as the screw shanks.
Then lay the boards back in place, drill pilot holes into the rails (slightly smaller than the screw size) where the screws are to go, add the screws and tighten.
