Set the wing frames on the cabinet while installing the hinges to give you the right hinge position (you want the hinge knuckle flush with, or slightly above, the top of the plywood).

Drill 3/8-in. holes through the wing brackets and 5/16-in. holes in the sides of the wing frames as shown in Figure A, then connect them with 2-in. bolts (Photo 7). Install the wing panels (H) using glue and screws.

Lift the wings and support them in the open position by clamping two straight 2x4s to them as shown in Photo 8. This will give you the approximate correct '' position for the wings. Swing the wing brackets against the side of the cabinet and mark a line along the bottom (Photo 8). Swing the supports out of the way and install the cleats 1/4 in. above these marks; this extra 1/4 in. gives the wings the lift needed to create a flat surface.
