Hi everyone! Glad to have found this site.

I am attempting to make a dining table that is similar to the one in attached scans. The top would be made of blockboard with 3mm teak veneer. The underside will have two door straighteners to keep the top from sagging or warping.

However, I am having trouble sourcing the metal connectors that connect that solid teak legs to the underside of the table top.

Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

More than likely the furniture company has had those brackets made. They wouldn't have to be L shaped. You could purchase some 1/4"x6" flat steel and make your own. It would probably be even better with more surface steel. The steel can be cut with a metal cutting blade on a circular saw and you could drill and countersink the holes with a drill press. Even though with that design I would put air under the table any time it is moved. Without a skirt there would be a lot of stress on the joint.
