First post! Up front – I am NOT a carpenter or furniture designer. I am (or try to be) an artist … of sorts.
I am trying to build a table from discarded construction materials.
I found the cut-out for a round window at a site near where I live. The builder said I could have it (I didn’t steal it). I painted a design on the circle to be used as a table top.
The round table top is approximately 35 1/2” (side to side)
Question: How far apart should the legs be spaced?
I am considering using 2” x 2”s or 2” X 4”s – for straight legs.
Is there a formula or prescription for determining how close to the table edges the legs should be?
I have considered using 2×2’s. Each leg 32” long.
So – will my idea worK Is there a better, basic and simple design that will work better?
Thanks for suffering me.
