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.

Table top “L” Bracket holes
Assemble Side Panels
3/4” Pin
not used
A. Each side panel consists of two (2) legs,
one (1) top side brace and one (1) glide support
brace. When assembled, diagonal legs will be the
same (i.e. Front Right/Back Left & Front Left/Back Right).
Side panels are identical when assembled – the drawer
glides will determine left and right sides.
holes for
nut access holes
Bastion Post
B. Tap a 3/4” pin in each end of the top side braces.
Take each of the 4 legs and install one (1) bastion post per
leg, on the side of the leg which also has two (2) pin holes
for the glide support sticks. Locate post holes. Tap posts
in with hammer until threads engage wood; turn posts
down until the solid shaft hits the wood (all threads are
into wood), then back post out until the hole in the post is
perpendicular to the long length of the leg (about 1/2 turn).
Illustration 1A
Glide Support Steel Pin Holes
C. Lay out Front Left leg, one (1) top side brace and back
left leg as in Illustration 1A. Note the two pilot holes for the
L brackets are along the top inside of the top side brace.
D. Take the top side brace and drop a barrel-shaped
bronze bastion nut into the nut access hole as illustrated.
Threaded end of the nut faces out. Insert front left leg
post into the hole in the end of the brace, through the side
of the barrel nut, until the hole in the post can be seen
through the threaded end of the nut. Insert the set screw
into the nut and tighten down. The tip of the set screw will
seek the center of the bastion post as it is tightened, leaving a tight joint. If the joint is loose, check to make sure the
set screw is not cross-threaded or that the post is out too
far (not threaded into leg deep enough.) See Instructions
for Bastions illustrations on page 3 for clarrification of assembly.
Pilot Holes Toward The Top of Brace
Illustration 1B
E. Insert two 3/4” pins into each end of the glide support
brace. Position brace such that the pilot holes for attaching
the glide are towards the top edge. Insert brace pins into
the holes on the inside of the left front leg as illustrated (4
pilot holes out).
F. Fit Towel bar into hole below twin holes for
drawer glide support brace.
G. Attach Back Left leg in same manner.
H. Repeat for other side panel.

Attach Drawer Glides to Glide Support Sticks
A. Take the drawer glides, extend them to their fullest. See illustration 4. The glide has 3 parts. Remove
the furthest extended part (1) (smallest) by pushing the black plastic lever down – then pull part out,
separating it. This part will attach to the drawer side later. Attach the largest parts (2&3) to the glide support stick using holes as illustrated. Attach with Two (2) 7/16” #6 panhead screws. About 1” of the glide
will overlap the front leg. Only 2 holes in the glide support sticks will be used.See illustration 5.
B. Repeat with other side.

extend further as illustrated.
Left Back Leg

Attach Back Brace
A. You may find it
easiest to attach
the back brace
and shelves by
inverting the
island. Attach the
back brace with
bastions to the
right and left side
Attach Shelves
A. Decide which of
the 3 height choices
you want the middle
B. It is recommended
to get a friend to help
hold the shelves in
place as you attach
them using 1-1/4” #8
Table Top Preparation & Attaching
Attach four (4) “L” brackets to the bottom side of the
table top utilizing the inside set of holes using 5/8” #6
screws. Note the proper position of the “L” brackets.
Attach Table Top
Utilizing the “L” brackets,
attach the table top with
5/8” #6 screws.
Illustration 7-A
Make sure the round
hole is used to attach
the L-Bracket to the
bottom of the Table Top.
Insert Castors
Lightly tap the castor holders into place. Do not pound flat, as the castor will not fit into place.
Slide the castor into place tapping lightly with a hammer to guarantee proper insertion.
Assemble Drawer
A. Attach the Drawer Back to the
Left and Right Drawer Sides with
four 1 ¼”#8 Screws. Make sure
the slots that run the length of the
Sides are aligned with the slot in the
Drawer Back to accept the Drawer
B. Slide in Drawer Bottom,
best side up.
C. Take two (2) Bastion Posts, align
the threaded ends of the Posts with
the post holes located near
the ends of the inside
Drawer Front. Tighten
Posts down until the solid
shaft of the Post hits the wood.
Back Post out until the hole/
screwdriver slot in the end of the
Post is parallel and in direct line with
the long edges of the Drawer Front.
D. Insert the B-Nuts into the nut
access holes on the inside of the
Drawer Sides with the threaded end
facing out. Take the Drawer Front
and carefully insert the Posts into
the ends of the Brace Sides, through
the sides of the B-Nut until seated.
Push Nut snugly against the wood
in the nut access hole toward the
Drawer Front. Hole should be slightly
off-center toward the Drawer Front.
Insert the Set Screw and tighten
down. The Drawer Sides should be
tight against the Drawer Front.
E. Attach the Drawer Glides (left and
Right) to the Drawer Sides using
two 7/16” #6 Pan Head Screws per
glide. Open end of glide goes toward
the back of the drawer. (DO NOT
AT THIS TIME). Glide is almost flush
with the back of the drawer front.
Note: The black plastic tabs will be
up on the left side and down on the
right side.
Insert Drawer
A. Slide the drawer all the way in until you hear an audible click. The drawer should now
be secured to the glides. Don’t be afraid to give the drawer a shove in to seat the glides.
Note: Before inserting the drawer glides into the cabinet glides, pull out the movable sections
of the cabinet glides as far as possible, then insert the drawer glides into the ends of the
extended cabinet glides and slowly close the drawer keeping both sides even.
