I would like to extend my layout's support legs (2"x3"s) by 6 inches. Is there a simple way to do this without leg disassembly?
Here's the background: My initial modules were built with 48" legs. I am experimenting with the next (currently freestanding) module with 54" legs and I like the appearance much better. (Harder to work on but much better viewing angle). But now I would need to increase the original 3 modules ((2) 16"x6' & (1) 24"x48") by 6". Sounds simple so far.
The first (middle) 16"x6' module was constructed with 4 legs. The 2nd & 3rd connecting modules with 2 legs all using 1"x3" box construction (South Jersey flatlands). The 3 modules all tightly straddle bookshelves (see my blog for my stupidity decisions: July 16, 2011
I was going to replace the 2x3s with longer 1x3s and then realized that the current legs have attaching screws on 2
sides which includes the sides where the modules are attached together. If I need to disassemble the modules to get to the side screws I will have to destroy the connecting streets and scenery which hide the joints. Something I would like to avoid.
So the question is: Is there any simple way to add 6" to the bottom of the existing legs???
