Pay attention to a distance of about 10 cm! Then pre-drill all screwed connections with the wood drill and lower them! So with all parts for the table legs!
Then join wreath parts! Put a long piece of wreath on a flat surface and the short wreath parts! Align the short rim parts with the outer edges of the long rim part! Glue contact surfaces! Screw the short rim parts with 2 screws with the long rim part at a distance of 2 cm to top and bottom edge! Then put the second long ring part in front of the construction! And glue the contact surfaces again! Then screw the rim part with 2 screws with each short rim part!
Pre-drill holes through the wreath with the wood drill from above! Attention: Pierce complete hole and countersink the holes! Lay the tabletop flat on the floor: the top down! Place the finished wreath centered on the table top with a distance of 5 cm! Fix the wreath to the table top with 1 screw through each pre-drilled hole!
