Table and Benches v2


  • 4 x 3.6 metre (12 ft) spars
  • 6 x 3 metre (10 ft) spars
  • 2 x 2 metre (6 ft) spars
  • Approximately 20 light spars
  • Sisal or light rope


Construct two A frames (diagram A)

Lean the two A frames together and join them with two 3 metre spars, which need to rest on the cross members of the A frames.

Two 2 metre spars are lashed between the A frames to act as supports for the table top.

The last two 3 metre spars are lashed alongside the spars joining the A frames, to form the bench seats.

Light spars are used for the table top and tied in place with sisal or light rope.
