Topic tags/keywords: metal table legs metal table base

Long-time reader, first-time poster. As a woodworking newbie, I’m thankful for all the advice I’ve gotten vicariously as a lurker over the last several months.

Does anyone know a source for wide, u-shaped metal table bases like those pictured? I’ve found a few custom fabricators, and a just a handful of ready made bases priced at many hundreds of dollars each (which is out of my range!) I see lots of tables and benches with this type of base, but when I search online, it seems like all I find are hairpin legs or more “standard” type metal table legs. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

These are usually always custom made for/by furniture shops, or ordered in bulk from China. Or go see you friendly neighbourhood welder for quotes.

If you plan on making a lot of these it’s a perfect excuse to buy a welder and chopsaw.

If you Google “hairpin legs”, there are hundreds of sources. Surely there are some with special shapes. Sorry, if this is irrelevant, but I can’t see your image on my work computer.

There are always plenty of people with welders to be found. If you supply the material they’ll cut to length and run a few beads.

The alternative is to get yourself a welder, gloves, apron and mask and learn the process yourself.
