Rustic Table Metal Legs??


Hi All,

I'm working on a rustic table, which I am modeling after the following side table:
http://www.wayfair.com/Convenience-C...7-CVC1584.html

I haven't been able to find any metal legs similar online though. Does anyone know where you can buy such legs online?

I'm trying to get a rustic look to the table with mixing salvaged wood and metal. I like the idea of using wood though if I am unable to find the metal legs

Most every city of say 50,000 population and above will have a steel supplier. Ask for rectangular tubing, select the wall thickness and dimensions desired and most will cut it to length while you wait.

Nothing really "rustic" about that table.
Any machine/welding shop could make that easy.
Not only do you need the legs to make that one, but the supports to set the tops on.
Unless you own a band saw and a welder it would be best to have it made.
Those legs are not an off the shelf item.

THIS. Or any fab shop would likely have some shorter pieces of drop they'd sell reasonably.

Even Home Depot has short lengths of tube. Not sure about rect tube, though

Before buy the rectangular tubing, think about how you plan to protect the floor from it. Open ended tubing will scratch the heck out of a floor.

As Joe said, "Unless you own a band saw and a welder it would be best to have it made."

Or, make them out of hardwood.

A wooden plug in the end of the tube should be easy to make and install to protect the floor.
If you are good with a drill and bolts you could probably do most of this without welding.

Looks like a L shaped bracket was bolted or welded to support the shelfs.

Our steel supplier charges us 6 bucks a cut. I would look for some very thin wall tubing a sawzall will cut even up above 10 gauge metal. Even a skill saw with a metal blade.
