Table created for the chartering organization for Troop 4900 in Woodstock, GA (Woodstock Community Church).

Some deviations from the plans...we notched two of the cross member that support the seats and glued/screwed them together for greater strength in the center. That left 4 supports to be installed with pocket screws (weak). We added two small 2x6 supports where all these members join in the center and screwed the supports to the cross members, reinforcing the center and taking load off the pocket screws (see photo). Also, as you can see, we built the framing for the seats and table top, then added legs and placed the table top last to assure a level table top.

Finally, a recommendation - use 1x6 boards for the table top and seating areas for a lighter and more manageable table.
