What you need: 4 LACK tables screws 3 x 35 mm screws 5 x 80 mm wood glue old pieces of wood Step 1 Cut two tabletops to the shape, you what to have. Step 2 Fit plates of wood to the cut edges to stabilize them. Step 3 Cut the legs to the equivalent length, which you need to reach the height of the table you want to have. I cut 8 legs to 27 cm and 8 legs to 5 cm. Stabilize the longer ones with pieces of wood, again. The short legs I have filled with a mix of wood glue and sawdust.
