Table and Benches v1
- 4 x 3.6 metre (12 ft) spars
- 7 x 3 metre (10 ft) spars
- Approximately 20 light spars x 2 metre (6 ft) long
- 20 x lashing lengths
- Sisal or light rope
Construct 2 A frames using 2 x 4 metre spars and 1 x 3 metre spar (a).
Join the 2 A frames together using 3 x 3 metre spars. The lower spars are lashed on the top of the bottom cross members of the A frames.
Two more 3 metre spars are lashed between the A frames to support the table top (b).
The last two 3 metre spars are lashed alongside the lower spars joining the A frames to form the bench seats.
The actual table top is made up of light spars that rest on the support members and are held in place with a couple of turns of sisal or light rope.
If your lashings are good and tight the table is now complete, but it may be necessary to add a couple of guys for more stability.
