Sturdy Table Post

Hello,

I have a table in my cabin that has a single removable post for a table leg. I do not think the floor and table ends where really designed for this purpose, and so the table is a bit wobbly. I am building a new table, and want to get a new table leg that will not wobble around on me. I have been looking at the Sequoia Table Leg & Base System - itc-marine . com / legs.html (Oof, don't have 10 posts yet...)- I like the flat base as we take the table down just to make more room in the cabin on a regular basis, and have smallish kids running around down there allot.

I am wondering if any one has used these table legs, or if there are other suggestions for stable table legs.

Thanks
Bryan

What is the price of this set? The site does not say.

I just bought Garelick table leg - had to buy adjustable height since they did not have fixed height that I need (about 22" which this set seems to have). Haven't installed it yet The Garelick is not removeable - but quite sturdy - it has a 9" diameter base and really in my home testing did not move a bit.

Smaller base may mean two legs instead of one, I suppose. I really like the fact that they do custom heights - Garelick does not.

I have found the parts for sale at bellrpg . net, just search for Sequoia, it appears after selecting all the parts, its about $76(+ shipping) I have not looked around too much, so I do not know how this price compares. However, that sight only lists the 27 and 29 inch posts.

Good price - I found a single set (one leg/base/etc) on Overtons of all places for $50. For comparison, Garelick set is $140 or so.

Looking at this one, I'd say that for the same sturdiness as Garelick I'd need two of these - but that's still only $100. I guess Garelick is going back

Also, it appears that there is no special hardware on the top of the post so longer posts can probably be just cut to size, they aren't tapered or anything.
