Picnic table (traditional)

The support frames

You will need to make two support frames out of dressed 45mm by 75mm timber. The legs need to be cut at a 25 degree angle (off 90) so that both edges are 883mm long.

Use galvanized bolts, two in each join (eight in total). Nails will probably do the job but bolts are best practice because of the weight this frame may have to support.

Trim the corners off the underside of the set and table frame as shown in Figure 2.1.
