MATERIAL YOU WILL NEED:

- 20-25mm Spade Bit
- 6mm Drill Bit
- Phillips Head Driver Bit
- 6pcs: 30mm Screws

- Measure & mark two 300mm squares on the timber work piece. Clamp securely and cut along the lines using a circular saw.
- Draw lines corner to corner to find the center point of one piece. Then measure 150mm from the center and place a mark in each corner.
- Using a 45° set square draw 4 lines running through each of your marks.
- Align both of your square pieces so that your markings are still visible. Clamp down and drive a 30mm screw into opposite corners to hold the pieces together.
- Using a 6mm drill bit, drill 4 holes (100mm from each corner) to a depth of roughly 25mm.
- Using the circular saw cut along the lines to remove the 4 corner sections. Note: the 2 pieces will now be separated.
- Insert the thread of your 4 legs through the timber piece with completely drilled holes and secure with 4 nuts.
- Clamp down the second piece of timber & using a 20-25mm spade bit drill half way through the thickness (9mm depth) in the four positions of the partially drilled holes.
- Align the 2 hexagon pieces so that the nuts go into the drilled holes. Then secure together by driving 4 screws between the legs.
