A simple way to add straps to your Axis/Vegas tables to make it much easier to lift up from behind the couch.
#8 X 5/8" Wood Screws
Fender Washer 1/8" X 1"
Strap material (I used a 15'X1" Rachet tie down and cut off the end)
Drill bit slightly smaller than the wood screws
Tools: Drill, screw driver, awl, lighter/grill lighter
Start out by cutting the straps to length (about 18" or so). You'll need 3 of them (1 for the small table and 2 for the large table). Use the lighter to melt the cut ends of the straps so that they don't fray in the future.
Measure about 1/2" or so from the end of the drill bit and wrap some tape around it (this is your depth gauge):
Drill two holes opposite each floor mount on the bottom side of the table where you want the straps (see final image below for positioning).
Hold the strap over the holes and use the awl to punch a hole through the strap.
Push the screws through the washers and the strap.
Put a small "dollop" (yeah technical term) of wood glue over the holes (I always use glue in any camper project).
Screw the screws into the holes. Done. Now if you measured your drill bit correctly you won't have any bumps or protrusions on the opposite side of the table (I thought I did, but it was just dirt! LOL).
