Building a Picnic table
So I am building a small table for kids and thier friend.
This table top will be bolted to (3) 6x6 redwood pillars.
What I am uncertain about is the top.
It dimensions are 30"W x 72" long.
The perimeter is 2"x4"x 6'redwood. There will be another 2"x6"x6' REdwood piece down the middle. Then to fill the gaps there will be 1x2's all separated with a 1/2" gap.
Now the perimeter, I can countersink screws and then fill with wood caps.
It is the 1x2's that I am uncertain on how to affix. Becasue they will be surrounded by 2x4's I dont want to drop screws into them. Should I try to nail them or bolt from the bottom with a thin piece of wood.
Also is there a way to upload a drawing? this will all make way more sense if you see it.
