Here’s a tip from Larry, a viewer in California, to address two common problems with wood patio furniture: the tendency to rot from sitting on wet concrete, and to wobble from sitting on an uneven slab.
- Bore a 3/8-inch diameter hole into the bottom of each leg.
- Use a hammer to tap a T-nut into each hole.
- Thread a hex-head machine bolt into each T-nut.
- Adjust the bolts to level the furniture.
When I set the bench on the patio, the bolts lift the bench off the ground to prevent rot, and they are adjustable to ensure the bench is level.
