Angled mounting blocks are almost always used on table legs. While some craftsmen use metal, other woodworkers find that the versatility of making your own mounting blocks from wood outweighs the one-size-fits-all of metal mounting hardware. This type of block fits up underneath the table apron. It's cut diagonally across the front, with the shape of the table leg in back. This allows it to fit tightly over the leg, with both sides spanning across to the sides of the 90-degree apron. This type of angled mounting block leg installation is one of the most secure and permanent of all table-leg designs.
