Instructions

Step 1

Using pliers, remove the metal mounting screws from the bun feet. Sand the flat tops and bottoms smooth.

Step 2

If you’re unfamiliar or uncomfortable with drilling holes at an angle, print out the optional Flag Centerpiece Drilling Guides. Use spray adhesive to attach the drilling guides to the tops of the square furniture feet. Using a nail or awl, make an indentation in the center of each hole to be drilled.

Good to Know

Size the holes you’ll drill to suit the diameter of the flagstaffs. We made ours 1/4 inch in diameter.

Step 3

Drill angled holes

Hold the optional drilling angle guide in position along a dotted line and use it to align the bit angle as you start to drill. Drill the four angled holes on the middle wooden foot and five holes (four angled and one straight) in the top wooden foot. You can use the hole from the screw you removed as a guide for the center hole on the top foot.

Step 4

Apply wood glue to the bottoms of the two square wooden legs, and center them on each other and on the round bun foot. Apply weight to the top or clamp them together.

Step 5

Spray two coats of paint (satin white shown), let dry, and insert the flags.
