HOW TO MAKE A PEDESTAL TABLE



I turned this round country table with 4 legs
 into a fabulous and romantic pedestal table.



BEFORE                                            AFTER
 


You will need a pedestal and a board.

 
This pedestal was a road side treasure.
 
Make sure the board you use is extra strong such as 3/4" plywood
and is cut to fit the underside of your table.

NO LEAF
A solid table top that does not have a leaf
you simply attach the board to the underside of the table top with screws.

LEAF
A table top that does have a leaf, will need equalizer slides meant for a pedestal.

 
You will need to screw the thick wood to the wood slides, that's why I changed out the metal ones.

 
In most cases you legs unbolt from your table, be sure to take them off the table to cut them short.
 


With your top turned upside down,
turn the pedestal with the board upside down and screw into place.


Pedestal tables are great for smaller spaces.
