CAST-IRON BENCH AND TABLE LEGS, from Lee Valley, are offered in a Victorian style for a workbench or as a non-wobbly base for a table or desk.
The freestanding legs are held together with a truss-rod system that prevents racking and provides a heavy and rigid base, according to the company. The table legs are 27" high and 22" wide and weigh 60 lbs. per pair. There is a 21"-long top that readily supports any top that is at least 22" deep. The cast-iron feet are drilled and tapped so they can be attached to a non-marring pad or bolted to a sub-base if required. The legs come in charcoal gray, but can easily be painted.
