I just built an outdoor cedar table and two benches to go along with it. The legs are all 4×4s…..
I cut each leg exactly the same…. I know though there are tons of variables! I pocket holed the skirts to the legs, so I know some of the skirts could be just a cm high or such pulling that leg up by a hair….
The table is solid and level. When you sit on the benches they are steady, but when not sitting on them you can rock them ever so slightly…. I can’t tell which leg is short or long. When you tilt it one way one leg looks 1/32 of an inch short, when tilt it the opposite way it is the opposite leg that looks just a tad bit short….
Any advice on how to level these out. I unfortunately don’t have a big enough assembly table right now and am working on my uneven garage floor and driveway. I don’t want to cut anything, then i will be just chasing my tale.
I was thinking of sanding the legs just a tad….. Any advice on how to get them all perfect would be great! They are going to be sitting on a deck. They are perfectly fine now, but I want it to be perfect!
