I glued up the legs for this table using dowels. I applied glue and snugged the legs to the slab and then set it on the a flat level surface and applied pressure to make sure the legs were all solid on the ground. I then flipped it back upside down to let the glue dry without the squeeze out running down and ruining my finish. I guess one of the legs moved when I set it upside down to dry or the glue pushed the joints apart unevenly because now one leg is about 1/8” off in one corner and the table rocks if you put weight on the sides
I would like to know if anyone has advice or ideas to remedy the wobbly table. It sits fine on carpet and with one of those little felt stickers for chair legs on the uneven corner stops the wobble on solid surface. My idea is to flip it and re-level all legs with my router jig or add 4 small plugs on all 3 legs to be sanded down and fine tuned to sit level on what ever surface it finds a home at when I sell it.
I am hesitant to run and ask questions but after searching through past forums and not finding answers but learning a lot I feel like by asking it also helps future LJ members.
Thanks for any ideas
