The spinning blade should be parallel to the wood grain; this process will create and old, scrub planed or well-used look. Pre-drill four holes near the miter joint in a grid pattern. The two holes are in line with the miter joint provides the framework skirt attachment, while the other two are to attach the skirt frame to the table legs.

Drill two angled guide holes in each of the table and stool legs. Center table top on the legs and screw top to the frame using the 3-inch grabber screws. Apply the stain and varnish.
