I’m currently building a mid century modern reception desk for a salon. My question is about the legs. I need legs that are about 25” and not quite as thick as typical table legs. All I can find is tappered legs that start at 2 1/4. I want something in the neighborhood of 1 3/4” tapered and 25” tall. Any ideas where I can get these. I’ve checked all the internet resources that I know of. Any help would be appreciated.

If you’re building the desk, just build the legs. If you can’t buy 8/4 stock, you can laminate 4/4 and cut to any size you want. You know how to make tapered legs by the accent table in your projects.

If you’re building the desk…build the legs

Yeah that’s where I’m at. Was just feeling lazy. Any idea as to what the splay of the legs should be?

If you don’t have a lathe I’m sure there are people who will turn a few legs for a price.

Lee Valley sells plates for attaching legs to a tabletop, http://www.leevalley.com/en/hardware/page.aspx?p=41854.

They note the splay angle as 10°
