Looking for a little help with mounting a glue up to metal legs.
I have made a firewood rack using 3/4” steel pipe and flanges mounted to a base made of framing lumber faced with maple veneered ply. Which I’m confident I do not need to worry about movement.
The top on the other hand is a glue up 18.5” x 48” made of (1) 7.5” and (2) 5.5” wide pieces of wormy maple planed to 7/4. The top will be secured to the 6 flanges, 3 to each 5.5” board with the middle 7.5” piece not having any mechanical support o then the glue up (seamless)
The question I have is do I need to worry about movement if I simply put one screw in each flange? I only want to stop the top from being able to be knocked off by children or the dog. As firewood will be put in this, the legs will likely be knocked so securing them is necessary.
Am I Overthinking this?
