Contemporary tapered leg suitable for both modern and traditional lounge suite chairs and sofas. Timber is tight grained European Beech coated with a durable NATURAL GLOSS stain. Height is 104mm including the 4mm x 18mm chrome plated dome on the base. This tapered leg presents several visual opportunities. Two faces of each leg are FLAT and two faces side by side are TAPERED. Judicious positioning of the legs offers four (4) different looks. Fitting is by threaded bolt already inserted through the centre of the wooden foot. The thread diameter of the bolt is Metric 8mm (M8) and is 30mm long. An Insert Nut M8 x 22.5mm is included with each leg supplied. This is the strongest fitting available for New Zealand soft timber frames. The drill size for the wooden frame to fit these 8mm Insert Screws is 9.5mm and the hole should be at least 32mm deep to permit clearance of the threaded bolt inside the frame. The Insert Screw is wound into the prepared hole by use of an 8mm diameter Allen Key. The threaded bolt should then be easily wound onto the fitted Insert Screw for a secure and stable result.
Suitable 9.5mm drill bits and 8mm Allen Keys are available on the "ASSOCIATED ITEMS" tab of this website if required.
HARD TIMBERS - Australian timber frames and imported European and American furrniture styles may be made from harder and tighter grained timbers. A simpler option to fit wooden legs in such circumstances is an Metric 8mm (M8) t/nut available as an optional extra. T/nuts have four sharp spikes that are located over the drilled hole and are driven into the underside of the wooden frame. This simpler fitting is shown this website at this link Tee Nut Furniture Fasteners.
