Line up the legs with the center piece, and sand down the inside edges for a flush fit. Attach the legs four feet from the bottom.

Pre-drill holes using a 1/4" bit at all connecting parts (at the legs near the bottom, and at the arm near the top). At this point, you can stain wood or leave it as is for a modern look.
