Hi All,

I'm having a big birthday dinner next weekend so am frantically trying to construct some extra table/seating out of 24mm birch ply. As I live in a small flat it all has to be collapsible so it can be stored under a bed. The table is easy - am gluing up some trestles at the moment that a peice of ply will sit on.
The seating however is a bit more complicated. My plan is to make bench seats, and I'm thinking of using cross dowels (bed bolts) to hold it them together, but I thought someone might have a brighter idea . . .

thanks for any ideas!

You forgot to mention to make it a proper job he will need cable ties to hold the milk crates together for the evening.

And the prize for pass the parcel could be a pair twesers

pig - for the splinters in the arse from the scaffold boards ... mind that would probably be a good party game - see who could pull the most out :LOL:

Edit: just noticed that the Forum automatically censored my term for bottom ... lets try an experiment - Arsenal
