How to attach metal legs to a wood table top?

Adding metal legs to a wood table top is a relatively easy process that anyone can do with a few simple tools. With the right supplies and a little bit of know-how, you can attach metal legs to a wood table top in just a few minutes.
Supplies needed:

-4 Metal table legs
-8 Washers
-8 Bolts (length will depend on thickness of table top)
- Drill bit the same size as bolts
  1. Place the metal legs upside down on the ground so that the ends that will be attached to the table top are facing up.
  2. Using the sharpie, trace around the circumference of each leg onto the wood table top.
  3. Remove the legs and drill a hole inside each of the sharpie circles. The holes should be just big enough for the bolt to fit through.
  4. Place a washer over each bolt and then thread the bolt through the hole in the leg and into the hole in the table top.
  5. Tighten each bolt until the leg is securely attached to the table top.
  6. Repeat steps 1-5 for the remaining three legs.

Your table is now ready to be used!
