This is my first post here, and I'm very new at carpentry projects. I've built a floor to ceiling bookcase (with diamond shaped nooks) and that's it.
I'm now tackling a trestle table that I found posted on this site,here.
I'm starting slow, one leg at a time and I have some questions as the instructions seem vague to me. I'm hoping someone with more experience can help me out.
Specifically I'm lost on Step 3 When it says to put 3" deck screw in to the "top corners of the corbels" where exactly does it mean? Also, when I put the lag screw in, since it is a 45 degree angle, will I be able to get it all the way in so it doesn't protrude from the bottom of the corbel? (My paddle bit for the hole is 5/8" and I got 3/8" lag screws).
Thanks in advance for any assistance. The wood wasn't cheap and I'm nervous to just experiment :)
