3. Carefully drill three screws in the top, middle and bottom of each table leg

Expert Tip: Drill slowly to prevent the screws from splitting the wood.

4. Turn the table over, and straddle the legs over the working table. Apply approximately 2 tablespoons of teak oil to a dry rag. Apply the oil in the direction of the grain. Allow to dry for two to four hours
