I have no experience with woodworking, but after many years of envious devotion, to the projects a close friend of mine completes, I have decided to finally do something about… I am moving back to Atlanta in 2 weeks, and I have already registered for a class at Highland Woodworking. Until then, I am stuck scouring the fringes of the internet, Pinterest, and Youtube, for the answer to my question, to no avail.
I wish I had more pictures to show you, but right now I am just in the preliminary planning phase of this project. I am just trying to ensure I have the supplies I need once I return to GA.
I envision a 60×30 desk using these hairpin legs, and converting an old door I salvaged from a house a few years ago. I just need a general answer to this question…
Are cleats required when attaching hairpin legs to a table that will be used as a desk or table?
Most videos on the net show people attaching hairpin legs directly to the table top with nothing else… However, a few websites stress that to keep the table flat for long tables and desks, they should be used.
I am mainly using this project to develop learn the basics of sanding and staining, and filling holes and cracks.
