Which table is it? (what is the name on the box) –  Shane Wealti Apr 9 at 20:40

yeah, you really need to tell us the model. also, you should be able to find instructions online at ikea's website at ikea.com/ms/en_US/customer_service/assembly_instructions.html. –  alt Apr 9 at 20:41
    
Oops, sorry, I hadn't realized that. I'll take not of that for future postings. –  Mazyod Apr 10 at 3:31
    
-1 Product specific question that has a narrow audience, and furniture assembly is a gray area that may be off topic for this site. This question should probably be closed, but I'm waiting for others to agree/disagree before taking action. –  BMitch Apr 10 at 13:31

Looks to me like you have a GALANT leg. From IKEA's website

The legs shall be fitted on to the frame before the table top is put in place.

If you only have the table and legs, you may not have everything you need.

Based on instructions found at the customer service site linked to by alt, you need to put the legs onto the frame bar piece, then put the screw through the top of the frame into the hole in the leg. Then attach the table to the frame with additional screws (smaller than the ones in your picture).

Oh, damn! You're right. I didn't pick up the third piece for the table because I thought it was an auxiliary part. I'll need to go buy it, I guess. –  Mazyod Apr 10 at 3:35
    
I'm surprised that Ikea let you take only a part of the whole thing. In my experience, they check to see if you've got everything that you've paid for. But hey, as long as this works out OK in the end. –  alt Apr 10 at 4:07

Going from those pictures, it kind of looks like you drive the screws through the holes in the table surface into the legs. :)

The table only has holes on one side, while the other side is completely clear. –  Mazyod Apr 10 at 3:32
