The sizes above are standard sizes, and if you want to match your furniture, you need the right size first. Measure the distance between the floor and the bottom of the table base. Do not measure the top of the table for sizing accuracy, just measure from the floor to the bottom of the table base.

How to color the legs of the dining table

Professional staining of untreated wood dining table legs only requires a few steps. Let's discuss these steps one by one.

  • Step 1

Remove the table legs using an Allen key or screwdriver. Screws are usually located under the corner of the table.

  • step 2

Screw a leg into a vise clamp by placing the top (where the leg meets the table) horizontally in the clamp with a minimal amount of the top of the leg in the clamp.

  • stage 3

Unless the leg is new and unfinished, remove the older color or discoloration by rubbing the surface of the leg with whetstones. Furniture separator blocks are available under a variety of brand names and do not require liquid chemicals. Break blocks should be rubbed lightly to avoid scratching the furniture.

  • Step 4

Then the legs are sanded until the leg is smooth. Extra dust and sand is wiped off with a towel or cloth. Skip this step if you are already purchasing one of our pre-sanded and finished furniture legs.

  • step 5

Open the trash can by sliding a flathead screwdriver under the edge and lifting. Move the screwdriver around the cover and open it.

  • step 6

Dip the brush/sponge into the stain and wipe the excess stain off the top of the can.

  • step 7

Paint the dining table leg in the direction of the wood grain, the end of the leg after starting from the top of the leg. Wipe the extra stain off the brush to prevent dripping. Paint all the legs and let it dry for about four hours.

  • step 8

The leg is removed from the clamp. Rotate the leg so that the undyed part is visible in the clamp. Cut a small strip of cloth and wrap it around the stained part of the upper leg you just dyed. Place the leg in the clamp. Color the undyed part of the upper leg. Let the stain dry.

  • step 9

Apply the polyurethane coating as a spray or brush. When spraying, hold clear polyurethane spray tip at least 12 inches from leg to minimize dripping and allow to dry.

  • step 10

Remove the vise leg. Spray the tops of unpainted legs and allow the polyurethane to dry completely in about 24 hours. Then reattach the table leg using the existing hardware.

Below are some things to consider when installing wooden dining table legs:

  • Wood screws should not be screwed directly into the table
  • Keep the total height of the dining table legs to 30 inches
  • For dining tables, position the legs 16-20" from the end of the table to sit comfortably on the other end
  • With legs in place, mark all mounting holes
  • Remove legs and drill holes for threaded inserts
  • Install the threaded inserts using a little glue for lubrication.
  • Use furniture screws to secure the legs to the table top. Don't over tighten, just fit snug.
