What size screws do I need?
Our mounting plate is pre-drilled for ¼” screws. Screw length will be determined by the thickness of your table top. Select the longest screw you can that will not puncture the table top. For example your table top is 1" thick, we would recommend ¾" screw length. For more advice, we recommend consulting your local hardwood store.
How do I select the right leg height for my project?
To determine the right height, first consider how high you want the top surface of your piece to be overall and then deduct the thickness of the material you will be mounting the legs to. For example, if you want your dining room table to stand at 30” high and your wooden table top is 2” thick, we would recommend the 28” height.
Below is a list of standard heights for common DIY projects.
12 - 18” - Coffee Table (the table should be lower than 2” from the seat of your couch)
16” - Bench
28” - Dining Table, Desk (there should be 12” between your seating and the top of the table).
28 - 30” - Entryway, Foyer Table, Console Table, Sofa Table (the table should be level with the back of the sofa or 1” below it)
Will unpainted legs rust?
Raw steel will rust if left untreated. You have many options for finishing your raw steel legs (see below).
How do I finish my legs?
Before boxing your legs up, we applied a light amount of oil to prevent oxidization during transport. Remove all residual oil using rubbing alcohol, paint thinner, etc. If some surface rust has appeared, you can remove it by rubbing the legs with steel wool or 220 grit sandpaper. If you wish to keep the industrial look of the steel, we suggest clear coating your legs either using a transparent spray paint like Rust-Oleum Clear Coat. You can paint the legs to create a pop of colour or metallic (copper, gold, brass) finish. We recommend Rust-Oleum Universal or any other 2-in 1 paint primer intended for metal.
