to make the most efficient use of the timber, follow the cutting list below exactly.
Assemble two opposing bench ends on a flat surface. Component C is positioned at a slight angle to give the bench a sloping seat. Make sure components A and B are parallel before drilling and fixing to C (fig.1).
Join the two bench ends using component D and then add the top back rest of the bench E (fig.2).
Check the project is square after every step.
Create the seating area by fixing components F and H first, then component G in between them, making sure you leave equal spaces between boards (fig.3).
Create the arms of the bench using components I and J. Angle the screws that fix the arms to component A to make sure they do not protrude from the opposite side (fig.4).
Pre-drill all holes with a countersink pilot drill bit to avoid splitting timbers as well as creating a better surface finish.
Attach the second back board (fig.5).
Finally, attach supporting struts between component D and the front legs of the bench (fig.6).
Use clamps to secure components in position. This allows you to double check measurements and that the work is square before drilling pilot holes and fixing screws.
Make two identical table ends, making sure that the structure is square by sitting components M against a flat surface such as a straight bit of timber before fixing with screws(fig.7).
Join the two table ends(fig.8).
Use Exterior Wood Glue between joints before you insert screws for extra strength.
Add cross brace.(fig.9).
Create the table top, making sure you leave equal spaces between boards.(fig.10).
