Wooden Picnic Bench - Pressure treated picnic tabl&hellip by Garden Secrets

One person can easily put this table together as long as they are reasonably competent with simple tools. A screwdriver, 13mm socket and a measuring tape are quoted as necessary in the instructions, but a soft hammer is also useful for knocking the bolts through in order to thread the nuts on the ends.

I would recommend screwing down the table slats, (part.1), before tightening the diagonal braces, (part 3), however, allowing the pre-drilled holes in the slats to line up centrally with the top braces, (part 5) to give a stronger join. If the diagonals are tightened first the screw holes are right on the edge of the table braces, which would result in them splitting or the screws… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 12 July 2008
It might be possible for an infinite number of monkeys with editing suites to come up with a worse cut than this, but unlikely. The original material has suffered the most haphazard editing imaginable to reduce it to some arbitrary length.

All dramatic tension has been lost and the remaining dialogue is nonsensical. Having seen the original on TV this is a major disappointment.

The question that springs to mind is, "Why did they do it?" Don't waste your money; however much this disc has been reduced in price it is still not worth it, even to use as a coaster.
