A. Attach a Glide Support Stick to the top of each Side Panel using 1 1/4” #8 screws. The
countersunk holes (reamed out) in the stick are positioned as in illustration below so that the glide
holes are toward the lower edge. Sticks should be flush with top of panel.
B. Attach the cabinet glide of the Drawer Glides to the Glide Support Stick using 5/8” #7 flat head
screws. The glides look almost alike however, the right glide (as you face the cart) has a rolled lip at
the top of the glide that keeps the drawer glide wheel in place. The wheel on the glide goes toward
the front of the cart, determining your left and right sides. Line up the holes in the glides so that the
end with the wheel comes flush with the front edge of the Glide Support Stick. Only 2 pilot holes are
used in the glide support sticks.
C. Attach the “L” brackets to the top of the glide supports using 5/8” #6 screws. Use the hole rather
than the slot. The slot will be used to attach the table top. The “L” brackets should be flush with the
top of the glide support sticks.
Note: Cabinet drawer glides usually have an imprint “CL” or “CR” inside near the wheel. CR=Right /

1. Remove the drawer
side section of the glide
by pushing the black lever
down and sliding the steel
inner glide section all
the way out of the glide
assembly. Set this inner
section aside as it will
be used later on the lower
drawer sides.
2. Next, identify the holes
to be used for attaching
each glide to the side panel.
IMPORTANT as shown
below, the full extension
glides are only attached to
the right side panel and to
the center divider as shown
in Step 6.

PLEASE NOTE - Some pieces are interchangeable with other units we manufacture, and thus some
pilot holes may not be used. It is important to note the proper holes required for assembly in each step.
1. The Bastion fastening system consists of a steel post (threaded on one end with a hole
through the shaft on the other end); a Barrel Nut (cylindrical barrel-shaped with threaded
open end & holes through the sides); and a Set Screw (Phillips slot on one end, pointed on
the other)
2. To attach Posts: A) Dip threads of Post in vegetable oil. B) Align threaded end of Post
with hole in wood, tap on slotted end with hard hammer until threads enter, then tighten
down using a flat head screw driver or the provided allen wrench (See the Illus. Bas. 3 for
alternate seating methods). DO NOT TRY TO HAMMER THE POST ALL THE WAY IN AS IT
WILL STRIP THE POST HOLE. C) When solid shaft of Post hits wood, back out
approximately ½ turn until the hole in the posts is properly aligned as per step by step
directions. For example: the holes in the posts on the inside of the drawer front will be
parallel with the long length of the drawer front when properly seated.
Illustration Bas. 1
Post needs to be screwed deeper.
3. A) Place a Barrel Nut into the nut access hole, so that the threads in the nut face out.
The small notches on either side of the nut opening, indicate the location of the holes
through the sides of the nut. B) Insert the posts through the end of the braces (or drawer
sides); through the holes in the sides of the nut. When properly aligned, you will see the hole
in the post inside the barrel nut. Post hole should be slightly off-center toward the wood.
Post needs to be backed out.
4. Insert the Set Screw into the threaded end of the nut and tighten down. The tip of the Set
Screw will seek the center of the hole in the Post as it is tightened down, forcing the Nut
toward the main shaft of the Post. This is what tightens the wooden parts together. Set
screws should thread easily – DON’T CROSS THREAD! If Set Screw doesn’t thread easily,
check position of the hole in Post.
Set screw secures post properly.
5. If the wooden parts are not tight against each other, the Post needs to be screwed a half
turn at a time until wood joints are tight.

A. Attach the Top Drawer Back to the Drawer Sides with four 1 1/4” #8 screws. There are left and right
sides. Make sure the slots that run the length of the Sides are aligned with the slot in the Drawer Back
to accept the Drawer Bottom.
B. Slide in Drawer Bottom, best side up, to inside of drawer.
C. Take the 2 bastion posts, align the threaded end of the posts with the post holes located near the
ends of the inside of the Drawer Front. Tighten posts down until the solid shaft of the posts hits the
wood. Back post out one full turn until the hole/screwdriver slot in end of post is parallel and in direct
line with the long edges of the Drawer Front.
D. Insert the barrel nuts into the nut access holes on the inside of the Drawer Sides with the threaded
ends of the nuts facing out. Take the Drawer Front and carefully insert the posts into the ends of
the Drawer Sides, through the sides of the nuts until seated. Push nut snug up against the wood in
the nut access hole toward the inside of Drawer Front. Hole should be slightly off-center toward the
Drawer Front. Insert the set screw and tighten down. The ends of the sides should be tight against the
inside Drawer Front.
E. Attach the drawer handles with 1” Truss head machine screws.
F. Attach the drawer glides (left and right) to the Drawer Sides using two 5/8” #6 screws per side
(packaged seperately). Wheels go toward Drawer Back and are up. The end with no wheels should
touch the Drawer Front.
