Maxmouth's picture

hi,

i'm building a walnut slab table with slab leg.  i am new to woodworking and this is my first time building a dining table. i try to figure out the best way to fix the leg to the table. i saw on youtube some folks who put only  peg on the end grain of the leg to go thru the table top but i'm worried that its will not allowd the wood to move freely.  can you guys/womens teach me the best and sturdiest way to fix those leg.

thanks you  and sorry for the grammar, english is my second language.

i will attach a photo of the general look of the table ( this is a google image)

Solutions of slab leg (post #179999, reply #1 of 5)

Repairing a wooden table leg making it as sound and stable as its first day is a simple and satisfying procedure. Follow the steps below to add extra years of life to your dining furniture.

Step 1 - Do It Now

Head off serious problems by repairing loose table legs as soon as possible. Furniture legs depend on each other to distribute the load and to provide stability. Allowing the problem to continue adds stress to the other legs and table joints that could cause them to loosen as well.

Step 2 - Try This First

First, tighten any loose screws. This may be the only fix necessary. Allow a few weeks of use and then check your troubled table leg. Tight and sturdy means you’re done. Loose, even if only small amounts means further repair is needed. Proceed to Step 3.

You can refer to the video tutorial on Youtube. It is quite useful
