DIY cross legged Picnic Table [Table of contents below]
Just the tabletop and bench top boards to go
Lay the tabletop and bench top boards on their respective frames ensuring all overhangs are equal and there is a slight
gap between all boards to allow water run off.
Mark for screw placement, in line with the cross-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 cross-rails (slightly smaller than the screw size) where the screws are to go, add the screws and tighten.
