Instructions

Step 1

Drill table leg for Shaker peg

Place the table leg with one face of the square section clamped against a flat work surface. Mark the top surface of the leg 4-1/2 inches from the narrow tip. Start the hole using a scratch awl to help keep the bit from wandering and drill a 3/4-inch-deep hole.

Step 2

Glue and insert a Shaker peg in the 5/8-inch hole. After the glue dries, drill a centered 1/8-inch pilot hole in the square end of the table leg.

Step 3

Find the center of the post cap by drawing lines between diagonal corners and drill a 1/8-inch pilot hole. Glue and screw the post cap to the table leg with the hollow underside of the cap at the bottom and the sides of the leg parallel with the sides of the cap.

Step 4

Add concrete to the cap.

Turn the assembly upside down and tape or clamp it to a work surface sturdy enough to hold it steady. Mix about a quarter of the bag of concrete mix with just enough water to make concrete the consistency of peanut butter. Immediately press the concrete into the bottom of the stand until it is nearly full. Leave a slight concave surface in the middle and the corner surfaces flush with the edge of the post cap. Allow the concrete to dry overnight.

Step 5

No nails needed when you display a holiday wreath using this portable wreath stand. --Lowe’s Creative Ideas

Spray at least two coats of the paint of your choice (oil-rubbed bronze shown). After the last coat dries, attach bumpers to the corners of the cap.
