HELP - leg size vs. top size
Ok, I know someone knows the answer to this and I would greatly appreciate it if they would share it with me. In real life I am making an occasional table with a five (5") inch thick top (had to have room for a three inch drawer). The dimensions are 5"thick by 26" W by 26" L. The top of the top is 30 inches from the floor. I had all the parts cut and dry fitted when "Quality Control" (aka - my wife) pointed out that the legs were too skinny for the top (legs were 1.5" square). I believe that she was correct. Which brings us to the question (finally!) - What is the formula for determining the circumference of the legs in relation to the thickness of the top?
