Build Table Top
Start by building the table top
by securing the B - Table
Batten and the F - Table Cleat
to the table top boards. These
need to be brought in 4 from
the edge.

Build The Table Legs
Cut and attach the leg
assembly. Tip: If you work
with the table upside down at
this point, it will be easier to
build.

Attach each leg using four


carriage bolts. Two into the B -
Table Batten, and two into the
D - Table Leg Support.

Install The Leg Brace
Cut and secure a diagonal
member that goes from the D
- Table Leg Support to the F-
Table Cleat.

Table is Finished
Now the table portion of the
build is finished. If you used
treated wood, let the wood
fully dry out before trying to
paint it.
