Preparing the feet for the legs

Using two different bits on your drill press, bore a hole through each foot for the bolt that will attach it to the leg. The bolt will be threaded into a cross dowel to provide long-grain support (step 4). Start by drilling a hole to conceal a bolt head with a 1%-inch spade bit. Mark a line on the face of the foot 1% inches from the bottom edge to indicate the drilling depth. Holding the foot upside down on the machine table, use the line as a guide for setting the drilling depth, then bore the bolt-recessing hole (right). Then switch bits and bore a %-inch-diam-eter clearance hole for the bolt through the foot.
