Question

Onyx Patio Table


When we purchased our new home my father-in-law gave us an Onyx table without a base. It measures 71" x 30". I was wondering if I went to lowes and bought a 4 x 6 post if I could make a base out of that for my table? I was thinking about creating a box with 4 posts. Should this hold up a 110 lb block of onyx??? Help would be greatly appreciated. I am dying to finally be able to use my table.

An onyx table top sounds beautiful.

If you show us some pictures, that would help a lot.

Thanks!

There are many sizes of lumber which will easily support a couple of hundred pounds, what you also want to consider is the ascetics so as not to have created the beauty and beast.

Some nice cedar or redwood, post some pics of the piece and I am sure one of the gents here will draw something up.

You sure can make a base for that table out of 4x4 or 4x6 posts with a boxed skirt.

Is this for indoor use or outside?

I would look into getting a metal support frame made for this piece of onyx. I would think 4x4 or 4x6 wood would detract from the beauty of the piece.

I want a metal frame for the table I am just having difficulties finding one. I figured the wooden frame would be a good alternative until I can find one that I like. If anyone knows a good website that I am missing to get a metal frame that would be great appreciated as well.

Here are a few pictures of my table. Also, this table is for outdoors.

Here is a company that might have a stand for your Onyx. You may want to call them to get more assistance.
