Use an electric drill to prepare the legs for the bolts from the feet. Start by fitting a foot and leg together and secure the assembly upside down in your bench vise. Insert a pencil into the hole in the foot and mark its center on the tenon at the end of the leg (above, left).

Keep the tool perpendicular to the end of the tenon throughout the operation (above, right).
