I have been mulling a idea on a Kitchen table. Bar top Height, with seating for 4.
The top would be a 1/2 inch piece of Glass 48 ” in Diameter.

My puzzle is how to make the base .
I have seen 3 legs for a base crisscrossed (like a jack) for a reg table height. But feel for bar height 3 would not be stable enough.
I also have dogs that need to be able to run under the cross bars so they must be higher than 12 inches from the floor.

Any one ever build a wood leg base out of 4 legs crisscrossed ? or seen one for a bar height ?

You could try the 4 legs crisscrossed as follows: attach each leg off of the face of a four-square post instead of having the ends of the legs all coming from a central point.
