    :D

    It may be worth seeing of you can get some longer post inserts. The longer the insert, the lower the average pressure on the soft pine. You'll want ones with an M8 thread and a 12mm outside...

    There's a good chance that the holes will end up in the same place so no need to do anything. Otherwise, as long as you use hardwood dowel, plugging and redrilling will be plenty strong enough. I...
