I have just completed refinishing and restoring 6 old pub stools. Each stool has four tapered legs, each leg is doweled (wood) to each corner at the bottom of the seat. Also, a metal brace fits at the inside top of each leg (lower screw) to the inside lower corners of the seat. (upper screw) A chrome square footrest is attached to the outside of the legs about half way down their length. Additionally, Each stool has 4 wood arches that fit inside the tops of the legs.
In reassembling the parts, none of my chairs legs are lining up correctly or evenly. By the time I get the chrome bar attached the stool is totally out of alignment. What steps do I need to take or is there a unique trick I'm missing in getting these stools put back together so they are level and their legs line up? Thank you.

One thing you need is a perfectly flat surface for the four legs to rest on as you assemble them so that there is no wobble. You can use a rubber mallet to drive the seat down onto the four legs as they sit on the flat surface.
