How to Construct a Footstool


Step 5: Create Two Equilateral Triangles

Create your two equilateral triangles

A.  Place three pieces together to form an equilateral triangle.  While holding your wood screws measure your distance from the peak of triangle back towards the middle so that the screw can pass through the first board and anchor into the second board (about two inches from the peak). Mark location.

B.  While holding boards securely so that the peaks line up, use drill (with drill bit slightly smaller than diameter of wood screws) to drill pilot hole through first board into second.

C.  Use screwdriver to screw the first board to the second.

D.  Repeat process at second and third corners until you have constructed a secure equilateral triangle.

E.  Repeat process with three remaining boards to create a second secure triangle.
