How To

Stage 1

Stage 1

Base Assembly

  • Take the bottom peice of wood, line the Flanges up so that they are all evenly spaced then mark the holes of the Flanges with a pen. These Flanges will need to line up to the open holes of the Two Socket Crosses of Middle Railing Border you will build in Stage 2.
  • Pre-dril the hole and make sure you go all the way throught the wood.
  • Now take your Bolts and go up through the casters, through the pre drilles holes, through the Flange holes then secure with Washers and Nuts.

Steel•Tek Professional Tip

Drill slowly to avoid cracking wood.
