Installing the Leg Levellers and the Threaded Bolts
After I've  drilled the 3/8" hole in the bottom of the legs, I mix up a bit of epoxy glue, smear it on the outside barrel of the T-nut and hammer the T-nut into the wood.  I do this assembly-line fashion for all of the leg levellers. 

Installing the threaded bolt might seem to be a bit tricky as we don't have anything to grip with a wrench without hacking apart the thread.  This is where those two 5/16" nuts come into play.  Thread both nuts onto the good end of the bolt, and, using two ½" wrenches, tighten them up against each other so that they lock tightly together.  Mix up some epoxy glue and, with a toothpick, dab a bit of glue into the hole in the top of the leg.  Insert the bolt into the hole and screw it into the hole with a wrench.  I've used a scrap piece of wood to make sure that I've got ¾" sticking out of the hole. 

Let the glue dry overnight and voila!  Wooden legs for your module.
