I had trouble keeping my brace and bit level, and ended up angling it up too much when boring the hole between apron and leg.
The nut just about fits, but there’s almost zero clearance between the nut and the stretcher, so no room for a washer.
Can I get away without one? Or will the nut sink into the soft pine if I tighten it too much?
I could try and re-bore the whole at a slightly lower angle (from the same entry hole), but then maybe it would have too much up and down play.
Or I could saw a gap for the washer into the bottom of one of the stretchers.
