Hi fellow Lumberjocks!
My husband and I are embarking on a project to convert our 20 year old neighborhood entrance sign into our dining room table. We are stumped on what kind of table base to use and how many legs should be on this table in order to keep it stable. I thought we could buy an old table and use the base from it, but my husband is concerned about the weight and size (10ft X 5 ft oval) of the table. He wants the legs or pedestals to be placed correctly so the table does not tip. We have searched the web and see no firm rules, but some must exist.
Does anyone know of particular rules, and if so, can you provide us with a web link or the info to compute the size of the legs needed along with their placement?
A photo of the sign is included.
If the photo is not showing up on this forum, you can Google, “Beachwalk on Vilano” and a photo of the sign can be easily found.
