After considering several leg/base options, she decided that she liked the look of some metal hair-pin legs made by a metal worker on Etsy.
Once I received these four metal legs in the mail, I immediately thought that the shape of the finished table might lend itself to having only three legs.
After attaching only three legs, this is what it looked like. From this angle it looked pretty good.
But from other angles it looked like a three-legged dog
It definitely didn't look as cool as I thought it would. Just goes to show that sometimes you have to try it on before you know whether you like it. I still want to make a three-legged table...
Here is the end product with all four legs.
