Topic tags/keywords: table legs modify question

I have a small table, 24 X 36, that I acquired from a local preschool. Obviously, the legs are too short. The table has the regular set-up- apron, cross brace, bolt through the brace and into a 2-1/2 X 2-1/2 leg. I would like to use the table for a drill press, bandsaw set-up. I want to raise the height and have come up with a couple of ideas. First, cut down a 4X4 pressure treated piece on the TS. Second, make an “L” out of 1X3’s and put a trimmed down 2X4 in the center of the “L” to reinforce it. Third, can I add on to the old legs some way? I can put a leg up to 3-1/2 X 3-1/2 on the table. I’m 5’ 6” tall. How should I arrive at a comfortable height? Your help is most welcome.
