are buried in wood blocks that are screwed to the table’s end
panels. Locating the blocks in exactly the right spot is easy.
Step 1. Thread the blocks onto the threaded rod buried in the rail.
Step 2. Swing the rail upright.Then drive a screw through the T-nut
block and into the end panel.
Step 3. Unthread the bolt from the T-nut block. Fold the rail down and
out of the way.Then drive in the bottom screw through the T-nut block.
