Gentlemen…Have spent an hour googling for inexpensive pine table legs for a project I was handed earlier today. Not yet proficient at the lathe so I thought you guys might have a tip on where I can go to check on these LEGS. Do not like the idea of spending a small bundle on this project. Thanks!

I’ve seen some fairly inexpensive ones at the the big box stores. Most of the ones online are outrageous.

Thanks for the blind alley. Really was not what I had in mind.

Roger, how about Osborne Wood. I have bought some corbels from them and thought about getting some table legs for a kitchen island.

Do they have to be round? You could always taper a square leg.

As Steve Martin would say… “Well excuuuuuse me!”

I’ve looked at a number of sources for table legs, and have always thought they were quite expensive. One day at Home Depot, I saw some pine ones that I thought were pretty reasonable. I wouldn’t use them for a piece of fine furniture, but you didn’t go into details about your project. You said you didn’t want to spend a bundle.

Based on the information given and the question asked, I thought it was a reasonable suggestion. Sorry if I insulted you.

Sorry Charlie…no offense…I checked just one “big box” site and that was the one that led “no where”. This hillbilly was not aware that the term referred to the biggies like Lowes, Wallyworld and the like. And, Zuki, my customer insists on spindle type legs to match an item that I had restored for him. Thanks everyone for the input.

No problem, Roger. Good luck on the search. And be sure to let us know if you find a good source.

Osborne has supplied me for many projects. They are extremly reliable and VERY reasonable. I have always received excellent customer service.
No connection, just a happy customer.

If you’re looking on Lowe’s or Home Depot’s web site, they don’t always show you everything they stock when you do a search.

I found some nice pine legs at Lowe’s. I think they were like $14 per. Osbournes’s is a good place as is VanDyke’s. I used the Lowe’s legs on the kitchen table in my projects.
