Build a kids table and bench   By Les Kenny

Step 9. Add the braces

This is best done with the table and the bench upside-down.

Just the bracing to go. Two lengths in all - one for the table and one for the seat.

This is best done with the table and the bench upside-down.

First drill a screw hole through the center of each side wall, just above the top rails (remember, everything is upside-down at this stage).
Apply a bit of exterior type wood glue to the ends of the braces.
Sit the braces in between the sides (one for the table and one for the bench) on top of the batten in the center of the table top and bench top respectively.
Sit a temporary packer piece (the same thickness as the batten) at each end of each brace to keep the brace parallel with the table/bench tops.
Screw the braces in place.

Hey, that's about it

Turn the two units up the right way and get the kids to test them out.
