Hi To All
I cut the angle at 52dg for the legs of this flower trough and as a result the legs won’t stay in one place.
I placed a 12mm bolt joining the legs and tightened it down fast several times, but still moves a bit and doesn’t feel safe.
Originally I was gonna cut a 45dg angle for the legs however I didn’t want to chance the wind knocking the trough over.
So, the question is what would be the best practice for this type of situation?
1.) Place two 6mm bolts in legs to lock them in place?
2.) Metal brackets? (as in pix)
3.) Bigger piece of triangle to attach both legs to this piece?
4.) Metal plate running horizontally between both legs? (red line in pix)
5.) None of the above :(
I like num. 4, but what do I know I got myself into this.
I want to build a few more, as a few people have mentioned how nice this one looks.
Needless to state I haven’t been at woodworking very long but I keep getting a little better w/ each project or two completed.
Any and all suggestions are most welcome, thanks in advance… Jack
