Mounting solid desktop to metal base


Recommended Posts

I have a electric sit/stand desk DIY base kit and glued up a nice wenge and zebrawood top for it. The metal arms for attaching to the top were clearly not made to deal with wood movement.

One line of screws is pretty close to the center of the table. I thought about leaving those as normal and reaming out the rest of the holes to allow for breadthwise movement (screws then mounted with washers). Better/less invasive ideas?
