In Response To: oak dining table legs (Doug)

I have a similar table. The legs are attached to separate oak boards that span the table sliders on the underside. There would be two legs attached to each board and a third equally sized board with just one leg for the centre. If you look under the table at the sliders you should see a set of screw holes that don't correspond with any thing else--these would be where the board would have been attached-in such a way as to not interfere with the opening of the table. The legs would be attached to the board by a robust centre peg. Ps--try to get some good heavy period legs from an antique dealer or architectural scrap dealer. They are out there. Also, my table legs are robust, turned with large balls near the top and a tapered reeded section in the middle-if that helps.
