I could esily build a 4 legged one but prefer the look of a 3 legged
tripod type layout of the legs apart from that the previous owner has
done a poor job of laying slabs so a 4 legged would never be level.
My problem is that anything I have looked appears complicated joints
where the legs meet and may be beyond me for accuracy.
Is there a simpler arrangement for constructing a 3 legged table where
the legs angle out from a central point.
Any ideas welcome.
A fabricator should be able to weld you up a plate with 3 tube sockets
on it for leg poles. They just need to be spaced equidistantly around
a circle and at the same angle.
Or you can get them ready made
Or make a 4 legged table with adjustable feet on the legs.
The simplest arrangement would be three straight legs that are somehow
tied together at something close to their midpoints, and then fanned out
wigwam style. The bits from the join down providing the legs, then upper
section up the table support.
Could you not fit adjusters to the bottoms of the legs, if it is going
to be rigid?
I made up a pub style table & bench unit a few weeks. That has four
legs and it is on an less than even surface. They are no so rigid end
to end and it's own weight makes it twist slightly so as to always sit
with all four feet in good contact. Maybe you could design one pair of
the legs so they could pivot, to accommodate unevenness?
I may just go for a 3 legged straight legs in the end, This is more
than `less than even` surface as height of some of the slabs differ by
as much as 2 inches and it will be next year before I have the time to
relay them properly.
I am not grasping it NT. What I want to do is an X type layout for the
legs but with 3 legs, I understand the screwing table top to the legs
but it is the `joint` where the three legs meet that is the issue.
