That's it! Turn your table right side up and admire your new heirloom quality table base - less than 10 minutes start to finish.

What is the dining height for a table base?

The height of a dining table base is 28” - 29”. Your table top will add another ¾” to 1.75” of height depending on your choice of table top thickness.

How wide should the base of my dining table be?

Your dining table should be a minimum width of 23” for one diner to sit comfortably on an end. To fit 2 people on each end, increase that to a minimum of 48” wide. With a 3” table top overhang on all sides, the base of your dining table should then be at least 17” or 42” wide, respectively.

How can I attach my dining table top to the base?

To attach a dining table top to the base simply follow this process:

  1. Flip the table top upside down on a clean, carpeted or blanketed surface. 
  2. Flip the assembled table base upside down and place it onto the top.
  3. Center the table base on the top, so the overhang is even on all sides. 
  4. Gently drive in the mounting screws one at a time, alternating sides to ensure proper alignment. 
  5. Flip the completed table over and enjoy your creation.

Tip: Ensure the mounting screws are sufficiently short as to not pierce the top!
