So I make a “bar console” that is currently completely assembled. For those that are wondering what a bar console is, it’s basically a tall sofa table with barstools that slide underneath.

I have a potential customer(big furniture store) that is interested, but it would need to be KD for warehouse reasons.

I was wondering if you guys had any ideas on the KD part?

The leg assembly would have to be one part. Legs and apron/stretcher together. Here’s a pic

Just do a web search for knock down hardware. There are all sorts of designs out there, so I’m sure you can find something that works.

I’m confused, you want it to knock down, but want the legs and apron to stay as one part?

How knock down does it need to be. Will it be an everyday occurrence, once a week, month, year? Does the knock need to be tool-less design?

As Rich suggested Google

I assumed it was a one-time Ikea-type thing just so it’d fit on a shelf at the warehouse.

The end skirt/bottom stretcher/legs needs to be one assembly that needs to connect to top/front skirt.

In my mind it’s a one time KD. After it’s put together it doesn’t need to come apart.

No need for tool less design. Although it needs to be efficient and easy to put together.

Hmm I see whart you mean now, so you can’t really do the normal leg brackets as ususal. I guess a couple options are to:
1. Attach front and back apron to table top, predrill for bracket, then use the leg brackets screwed into side apron and attached to leg via hanger bolts: https://www.amazon.com/Surface-Mount-Corner-Brackets-Aprons/dp/B002L6K5G0/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=Table+Leg+Brackets&qid=1556208830&s=gateway&sr=8-4

2. Attach this type of bracket instead, but grinding out the bottom of the hole into a slot that the leg assembly with bolts can slide into: https://www.amazon.com/Corner-Brace-Table-Leg-1/dp/B003FHS714/ref=pd_sbs_60_2/136-2845295-4814807?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B003FHS714&pd_rd_r=a44a7bd2-6775-11e9-9f49-5707d913d0fd&pd_rd_w=P5KR6&pd_rd_wg=dHUf5&pf_rd_p=588939de-d3f8-42f1-a3d8-d556eae5797d&pf_rd_r=KDCJD0SZ8XQXDHS9KJJF&psc=1&refRID=KDCJD0SZ8XQXDHS9KJJF

3. USe the Striplox pro 55s, but this would take more time mortising flush etc.

I wasn’t implying anything. Just digging for more information. Nothing more nothing less. You are probably right but he didn’t really say.
