    Here is why the 1¼"x¼"wood molding should be at 65¼" long, because the mesurement between the center of both legs is 60".

    To calculate the lenght of the wood molding : --> hight²+lenght²=?? then square root of ??= ?

    20² + 60² = 400 + 3600 = 4000

    The hypotenuse of the triangle is egual to √(4000) = 63.25

    After you have cut your four pieces of 65¼" wood moldings, and drilled a ¼" hole at one inch from each ends. Mesure from the inside of each legs half way the mesurement of the leg's width 2½" witch will be 1¼" center line. Than mesure 30" inches from the bottom of the leg. Drill a ¼" hole. Bolt one end of one 65¼" x 1¼" x ¼" molding.

    For the other end, mesure 1¼" center line approximatly 10" from the bottom of the other leg. Put your drill through the hole of the molding and drill a hole though the center line of the leg, and bolt the other end of the molding. Do the same thing for the three other moldings.
