Re: Entry hall table for a niece: Part 11

From the original text,

"Why add screws? The screws are not to prevent the base sliding back (an elongated hole actually encourages this). It is just to prevent the base twisting in, and breaking out of, the socket since there is no glue there to prevent any lateral movement."

Is this concern due to the clearance height? Would "sliders" under the feet alleviate this stress, were the sideboard dragged across the floor?

Brian Boggs provides his kitchen chairs with a leather or PTFE glide.
