O-shaped table legs

The O-shape is the simplest form to give your table top a solid base. It is a straightforward shape and therefore easy to make a construction that can carry the weight of the tabletop. This shape fits well with all styles of living, depending on how coarse you make the legs. For example, if you make the legs square and paint them black, it fits perfectly in a retro interior. If you make them narrower and paint them white, then it is perfectly suited to a modern home. So you can play with this to get the best result.

You can literally make an O-shape, but you can also make the top or the bottom decrease or increase as shown in the sketches below. It gives a playful twist! It is also a surprising choice to add an extra beam or upright in the 'O'. How? It could be a transverse beam, a grid of vertical strips or anything else that makes your table legs unique.

U-shaped table legs

With a U-shaped table leg, it is important to think carefully about the construction. The "U" is not solid in itself and even when the tabletop is attached it can still wobble. For extra sturdiness, place a crossbar between the two legs!

A-shaped table legs

If you raise the crossbar at the bottom of the O-shape slightly, an A-shape is created. This makes the leg look a little less chunky, because the table leg looks more spacious. You can of course play with the height of the crossbar. Choose the height you like!

X-shaped table legs

A table with an X-shaped base is currently a common sight in home furnishing shops and magazines. It is a popular shape, but not so easy to make yourself. Although this of course depends on your knowledge of the job. Are you going for a table with an 'X' shaped base? Nice work!

V-shaped table legs

Thanks to the edge processing we offer: sawing in mitre, it is also possible to make a V-shaped table leg. It requires solid construction! A V-shaped table leg is generally a bit coarser due to the thicker legs in order to get a solid construction.
