Take 2 leg pieces. Keep them like an 'X'. Keep the top edges of the X against a straight edge from another piece of wood. 

Make sure the inner edges are 7cm apart as shown in the figure below.

Mark the position of the two 'X" on each other so that you exactly where to apply the glue. These markings are important because without it, the alignment of the top edges of the X-es will not be parallel. 

Once the markings are done, apply glue and screw the X together.
