How to Build a Table With Removable Legs : Hardware for Building a Table

I’m going to show you the selection of hardware
that we’ll use when we’re assembling the table. To attach the apron to the top I always like
to simplify it by using just a small angle iron, it’s got holes. To attach the legs to
the apron we’ll use a lag bolt, or lag screw excuse me, we’ll use a lag screw. I’ve chosen
a 5/16, 2 inches long and it’ll be a nice solid connection. We’ll also be using some
assorted screws, I’m going with an inch and a 1/4 screws here, wood screws. We’ll also
need which is very important 3/4 inch screws. That’s because we’re going to have to attach
the angle iron with these into the apron and of course we’re dealing with just 3/4 of an
inch thick wood, we don’t want our screws to push through. If we wanted to get fancy
smancy we could put these inserts into the leg and I’ll explain later as we go through
that way we’ll use a 5/16 bolt. Kind of dresses out a little more, show it to your friends,
you’ll look a little more professional. That’s pretty much it for the hardware.

  1. It's hopeless to watch these vids when they're not marked with number or something. I have to use alot of time just to find out wich vid to watch when, and tell you what, that I ain't doin'. Put the vids in a playlist for quick playing.

  2. Has anybody gotten Hyezmar's Woodworking Bible yet? I think he's still looking for readers before publishing it. At least that's what I saw in a site after googling him.

  3. n use woodprix, it has the best handbooks and ready instructions. You can learn much from them and make it yourself.
