    Lay your timber

    Step1
    Step1

    After viewing the picture of the bushman table and bench seats, lay your timber on the ground or bench before cutting. Decide which pieces will best suit your desired look.

    2

    Measure your table size

    Step 2
    Step 2

    3

    Trim the timber

    Step 3
    Step 3

    Starting with your table top pieces, trim off the inside edge of your two outside pieces. Then select your centre slab piece and trim both outside edges. Next step is to trim to length to 2240mm.

    4

    Cut table base

    Step 4
    Step 4

    For your table base select your chosen pieces and cut your base ends to height. Our table leg base height is 660mm.

    5

    Mount the table

    Step 5
    Step 5

    Next take the piece you have selected for the centre brace to go between your table ends and cut one side edge so that it will mount flush up under the table top centre board. Your piece should be at least 200mm wide after cutting one side. Next trim to a length of 1400mm.

    6

    Assemble the table base

    Step 6 & 7
    Step 6 & 7

    Measure the width of your base and mark the centre. Checking the width of your centre brace make a mark either side of centre on the base end so the brace is positioned correctly. Pre-drill two or three holes down the centre line to make the screw assembly easier. Take one table end and centre brace piece and turn upside down on flat surface. Line up marks and continue with pre-drill holes then screw together. Once done, replicate the procedure for the other table end. Once done, turn table base assembly upright.

    7

    Place center table

    Step 6 & 7
    Step 6 & 7

    Place your centre table top board upon the base. Using your tape find the centre position and then adjust so the overhang on either end is the same distance. Once done, pre-drill hole and screw the centre board to the table ends. Then find centre of the brace under the centre board and pre-drill 3 holes equally spaced along the table top.

    8

    Finish off table

    Step 8
    Step 8

    To finish off simply place your table top edge boards on either side of your centre board and pre-drill and screw into position leaving about a 6mm gap between your timbers. Also trim and sand any edges. Your table is now finished.

    Bench seats

    Step 10
    Step 10

    Seat base procedure is the same as the table base. Take the pieces selected for the seat base ends and cut to a length of 365mm. Next trim one edge off your seat brace base and cut to a length of 1850mm. Mark the centre points of the bench seat ends and pre-drill and assemble . Once again having the pieces placed upside down on a flat surface make assembly easier.

    Finish off bench seats

    Step 12
    Step 12

    Once both seat bases are done, turn upright and place your timber seat slab on top. If not already done make sure your slab is cut to a length of 2240mm. This will give an overhang of approx. 140mm on either end of the seat. Find the centre of the seat base ends and approx. 60mm in from each edge pre-drill and screw the slab into position. Then along the centre line of the seat secure the seat brace with 3 equally spaced screws.

    Final polish

    Step 14
    Step 14

    Your slab table and bench seat assembly is now done. Depending on the size and quality of your timber, extra bracing and pieces may be required. Now you choose to finish your project the way you like. Sand the sharp or rough edges as desired or leave as a rough cut.
