In Response To: attaching a table top (Pete)

I believe that what you wish to know is, what will make the top secure to the base, if so you could drill through the metal. That will take a 3/16" hole and some 3/4" wood screws with a round or pan head. Drill at least two holes for each corner, total eight holes and screws. If the drilling isn't a possibility, get four 4" long mend plates and bend them slightly in the middle. Hook them over a part of the base that touches the bottom of the table top, and put in as many wood screws as can reach. The screws should fit 3/4" into the wood to be secure, and try to use at least eight. I agree with Jim that the girth of the base should be suffecient in size to keep it on the floor short of some kinds of dancing.
