For maximum strength and stability, the cleats should be 1-2” shorter than the depth of the piece of furniture. (e.g., use a 20” cleat under a 22” deep case piece.) The angled cleats will make the feet splay outward. Ideally the toe of the foot should not extend beyond the edge of the furniture.
The Feet & Cleat Sets are designed to hold more weight than dowel screws or metal attachment plates. Each cleat is secured to your base with 6 (or more) mounting screws, and the feet are secured to the cleats with heavy-duty mounting bolts. The critical factors for maximum strength and stability are the length of the cleat and the material you are attaching the cleat to. If correctly installed into 3/4 inch material the cleats will bear considerable weight. If the material is thinner or softer—such as fiberboard—strength will be diminished. Ditto if the distance between the cleats is quite long.

Hans Wegner was a world-renowned furniture designer. His contributions to the Danish Modern style put an emphasis on simplicity, strength, and organic functionality and work beautifully on Mid-Century, Danish Modern, and contemporary furniture. In the 1950’s his round tapered feet emerged as one of the most popular styles. These iconic wood feet have made a resurgence in popularity in recent years.
