How to Attach Legs to a Coffee Table

Having a coffee table with a set of legs can add character and personality to a living room or den. Luckily attaching legs to your coffee table is a relatively simple process. Here is how you can do it:

Step 1: Gather the Tools and Supplies You Need

Before you start assembling the legs to the table you need to make sure that you have all of the necessary components and tools you need. Here is a list of all the materials you will need:

  • Table – An item that you want to attach legs to
  • Legs -Whatever legs you have chosen for your table
  • Screws – The right screws for the holes functioning with your specific legs
  • Electric drill -To make the holes in the table
  • Drill bit -The appropriate-sized bit for your table

Step 2: Measure and Mark Your Holes for the Legs

When you are ready to mark the holes you need to measure the location of each leg. Depending on the particular style of your table, this will likely require markings near each corner of the table or the integration of equal-distanced straight lines across the entire table. It is important to use a measuring tape and take your time to make sure that the holes are symmetrically placed.

Step 3: Make the Holes in the Table

Once you have marked the points of the legs, you will then need to use your electric drill to make holes into the table. Taking your time is particularly important at this step. You want to make sure that the holes go all the way through the table, so make sure that you give extra time and care while drilling.

Step 4: Secure the Legs

Finally, after the holes have been made you can then securely attach the legs to the table. Place the screws through the legs and feeding them in through the other side of the table. Then use a screwdriver to secure the screws on each leg.

Your coffee table is now complete! Attaching the legs can be a fun and easy process. As long as you have all of the proper tools, supplies and take your time during the measuring and drilling steps, you should have success in attaching the legs to the table.
