We used to have a table with hairpin legs at camp (cottage for anyone not in Northern Ontario) when I was little. And they’ve been popping up everywhere as of recently.
Then I found the deal of the century from Solid Built on Etsy. As he says “We believe in doing the right thing. We know what steel costs and what a reasonable price is for these legs. These are the best priced hairpin legs you will find anywhere. For example, at $39.99 for a set of 4 16″ hairpin legs, that’s $10 per leg.”
Look at this table from Lumberjocks. Walnut slab + Hairpin legs. I don’t know that I’ll be able to scrounge a slab of walnut for the top, but there will be something. Photos to come!
