What's the difference between metal legs and base

Table legs

The metal legs are mounted into the edges of the board, but are not connected to each other in any way. The plate is not supported in the length direction. The metal legs are more suitable for shorter tables with a stable table top (laminate, MDF,...). Read more here >

  • Affordable
  • Flexible - can be used for different board lengths
  • Easier transport and handling
  • Not suitable for longer tables (risk of the board deflecting under its own weight)
  • Not suitable for solid wood boards (does not hold the board in its entirety)
  • Susceptibility to dislocation/extrusion of the foot from the plate

Table legs

Metal bases

The metal base is freestanding welded frame supporting the entire length of the plate. The base is essentially two metal legs welded together by two or more metal braces that support the plate. The bases are particularly suitable for long tables with a stone or solid wood top. Read more here >

  • Ideal for long tables
  • High load capacity and stability
  • Protects the plate against deflection
  • Suitable for solid wood or stone countertops
  • Worse transport and handling
  • Higher price
