Coffee Table legs

I tried to post this in classifieds, but was unable to access at this time for some reason.

I'm new to the forum, and again, forgive me for posting this topic in the wrong section. I live in western North Carolina and would like to find someone local (or close due to shipping cost) to make some 3.5" x 17-18" coffee table legs for me.

Must be reasonable. (pine, poplar, maple, oak..etc)

Please inbox me or email: [email protected]

Thanks,
d

You need min of 25 posts before you can post in classifieds.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

There are several places that sell table legs and at prices cheaper than I can turn them. I don't remember the names off the top of my head but I'll bet you can google turned table legs and find them. Seems like Osborne is one and Rockler is one. There are more. I used to buy turned legs from them and return them to something else. It was less expensive than me buying the wood.

table legs

Thanks, and yep, I've tried several times to find a good deal online. Table Legs .com has some decent pieces starting at $20 for pine in the size I need, but I would have over $80 just in legs. The idea is to keep my costs down so I won't have to charge a testicle and a kidney for a table..lol. I found some better wholesale deals, but they are normally require a minimum order of 500pcs. Even at such a great discount, buying that kind of bulk is still out of my range for one order.

I just thought I'd give you guys a try while I browse around on here, and I'm sure I'll figure something out.

Thanks again,
derek

Hi Derek and welcome to the Forum

Have you considered repurposed legs from the local junk shop or other places where old furniture is one step away from the burn pile?

I do a lot of this type of furniture and it's a blast to find a worn out & forgotten piece and give a new life.

One of the best things is that there is always a story behind repurposed pieces.
Good luck

$20 for a 3.5" x 18" turned piece is barely covering the wood blank, let alone the turning time.
