A table from one sheet of plywood? Yes it can be done and whenever we camp with other Troops we are routinely asked about our tables among other things.
With some research we have found a few different plans for the tables, two images below which are also presented as links at the bottom with two additional links for PDF files for other drawings.
Note: for the drawing below we do not use the cleats on the underside of the tabletop, nor do we use the hooks. Building them this way allows the tables to breakdown and stack in a much smaller area.
To help teach knots and lashings in a way that is first and foremost, FUN.
How does it work...
The troop is chartered by St. Paul's United Church of Christ, located at Weavertown and Old Airport Roads in Amityville, Pennsylvania (a village in the Douglassville zip code). Regular troop meetings are held Monday evenings from 7:00PM - 8:30PM, from the beginning of September to mid-June.
The original, core values of scouting are an important part of our troop, though they may seem hidden at first glance. The world today requires a creative approach to instill the scouting values in each and every boy that passes through our troop. The leaders work very hard to make sure that those values are instilled through fun activities and camping trips.
