DIY cross legged Picnic Table [Table of contents below]

Instructions

Note: These plans and material listings are for a stand alone table and one bench. If you require more than one bench (chances are, you will probably want two), then allow for the extra materials.

The legs: Preparing and marking the joint

Out of 90mm x 45mm stock, cut the legs for the table and bench - 4 @ 960mm and 4 @ 575mm.
Make a cut each end 36 degrees off square.
The length along the sides (not the overall length) should be 885mm for the table legs and 510mm for the bench.

table leg dimensions

Cross each pair of table legs (in an upright position) so the bottom ends are sitting flush on a flat surface and apart 720mm overall, then clamp each pair together in the middle where they intersect. The overall height should be 715mm. Refer to the drawing below.

Cross each pair of bench legs (in an upright position) so the bottom ends are sitting flush on a flat surface and apart 500mm overall, then clamp each pair together in the middle where they intersect. The overall height should be 415mm. Refer to the drawing below.

table legs prepared for marking

Then mark where the legs meet (the intersection), on each side. That will mark the area that needs to be checked out.
