PART II A LEG UP - adding legs to furniture

In an earlier article I shared several tips to adding legs to furniture projects, now I am share some of the different styles and types of legs I have used.

The 3 wood legs used on this corner unit above
were salvaged from a little queen anne side table.

This next project has cast iron feet added, 
which I found at one of our LEE VALLEY stores.

Here is another set of cast iron legs
that were originally intended for a wood stove.


The legs on this media console are sections cut from uprights on an octagon 70's side table.
Most of you know the ones, next time you see one
stop and grab it.

Even a bed frame can have bun feet added to lift it up.
These bun feet if I recall correctly were found on a curb side
 love seat. Just stop the car, jump out, unscrew each leg, and
 your on your way.
I don't have one great source for legs, I simply watch for them
 everywhere. An important thing to keep in mind when
 thinking about installing legs is the weight of the furniture
 and the strength of your legs and install.

And of course if your furniture is better suited for casters
don't stop until you find a great industrial set.
Who doesn't like furniture that moves easily?
