Pedestal Table Base
Looking to make your table stand out? Finish your table project with a top quality solid wood table base from Wye Creek Woodworks.
Table bases are solid wood throughout and can be adapted to fit any length rectangular table by adding your own stretcher. When you are cutting the stretcher give 12” – 16” from the end of the tabletop to the legs to give enough room for someone at the end of the table to fit their legs under the table comfortably.
Rough sanding is lightly sanded (to 120 grit), with some saw lines still visible, in case you want the distressed/rustic look. Smooth sand eliminates saw lines.
As wood is a natural product, knots, imperfections, gouges and cracks may occur in the product. Any major gouges I fix with wood filler and sand, but there can be imperfections in the wood, especially as the wood expands/contracts between seasons after delivery.
The legs come disassembled, and some minor assembly is required. Comes with lag bolts to connect feet and arms top upright, as well as directions, and a template for cutting the size of the stretching.
It is best to paint or stain the legs while dis-assembled, then put together after finish is complete.
