What size screws do I need?
Our mounting plate is pre-drilled for ¼” screws. Screw length will be determined by the thickness of your tabletop. Select the longest screw you can that will not puncture the table top. For example, your table top is 1" thick, we would recommend ¾" screw length. For more advice, we recommend consulting your local hardwood store.
How do I mount my metal table legs?
1) Turn your tabletop upside down on a scratch-free surface.
2) Position one leg at a time in the corners of the tabletop, approximately 1 ½” - 2 ½” in from the edges.
3) Drill a pilot hole to avoid wood splitting and then temporarily attach the leg with 2 screws.
4) Repeat the process with the remaining legs.
5) Flip the table over and assess your work. Finish attaching your legs with the remaining screws.
Will my legs rust?
Raw steel will rust if left untreated. You have many options for finishing your raw steel legs (see below).
How do I finish my legs?
Before boxing your legs up, we applied a light amount of oil to prevent oxidization during transport. Remove all residual oil using rubbing alcohol, paint thinner, etc. If some surface rust has appeared, you can remove it by rubbing the legs with steel wool or 220 grit sandpaper. If you wish to keep the industrial look of the steel, we suggest clear coating your legs either using a transparent spray paint like Rust-Oleum Clear Coat, beeswax or linseed oil. You can paint the legs to create a pop of colour or metallic (copper, gold, brass) finish. We recommend Rust-Oleum Universal or any other 2-in 1 paint primer intended for metal.
