Step 5: Screwing down brackets

The IKEA directions for the table legs installation, while not very helpful, are completely hilarious.

I used a 1/8" drill bit for the screws that came with leg bracket, and pre-drilled all the holes necessary. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO SINK THE DRILL BIT TOO DEEP! Otherwise you have holes in your table top.

While pre-drilling I used a clamp to hold the bracket in place, then drilled the screws in.

<p>want so badly :D nice 'ible</p>
What a cool idea!
I'd call the regular pliers &quot;bullnose&quot;
We couldn't remember what they were called! Thanks. <br /> <br />(As a joke, we started calling them wide-mouth pliers.)
We simply call them pliers, we get specific only if we need some other sort of pliers. When you go to the store to buy them, they are labeled slip joint pliers
reminded me of my bedroom. i have a wall covered in A3 paper that i use as a whiteboard (mostly reminders and rough sketches)
Ya.. and $60 for a set of legs seems crazy too. I love the idea, but this project is big budget for DIY.
