Once the trim was thoroughly dried I then removed the clamps. I then sanded all sides of the legs making certain that the were all identical in length. I next place some glue all surfaces of each leg that would come in contact with the underside of the stool and surrounding trim. Next I used an 18 gauge brad nailer and drove a brad through the side of the trim into each leg as well as one through the top of the surface into each leg. This ensured that it will be good and sturdy as well as keep the legs in place while the glue dries. Screws or dowels could also be substituted for brads.
