Finishes


We have 11 professional finishes for you to choose from. They look great, are extremely durable and will protect your legs from rusting. We also offer a 100% natural, raw steel option.

Raw Steel

100% natural and bare. It will rust, even indoors, but it's perfect if you want to finish the legs yourself. Or if you want an industrial, weathered look.

Silver

The steel is electro-treated with zinc for an extremely robust, rust-proof finish. It pairs perfectly with stainless steel, and is even suitable for outdoor use.

Clear powder coat

Creates an industrial, raw steel look, without rusting. Clear coat adds a slight sheen to the metal and seals the steel for a long rust free life.

Copper

Create a striking, modern aesthetic. Made from real copper, the legs will age and develop a beautiful patina over time.

Colour powder coat

Available in black, white and a range of vibrant colours. Powder coat protects your legs from rust, while adding a pop to your project.

Chrome

For an eye-catching result. Our chrome legs are polished to a mirror finish, and look brilliant with a dark top.

Delicate floors? No worries.

Stop damage on delicate floors, and slipping on stone, with our free clip-on floor protector feet. Colour-matched and included with every set of legs.

Screws included
20mm woodscrews included. So you can get started right away.

Frequently Asked Questions


While 2 rod legs are strong enough to support the majority of projects, 3 rod legs add stiffness and stability for large – or heavily used – furniture.

We recommend 3 rod legs for the following:

  • Bench/16 inch:
    If your bench needs to support more than three people.
  • Desk or dining table/28 inch:
    We recommend 3 rods for added stability. However, 2 rod legs are suitable for small desks, as long as the top weighs less than 20kgs.
  • Console table or bar/34 inch+:
    The longer the legs, the more they flex. For this reason, we only provide our 34 inch legs in 3 rod.

Classic legs are made from 10mm thick steel and are perfect for the majority of projects, as long as your surface weighs less than 60kg.

Heavy Duty legs are made from 12mm thick steel and are incredibly robust. They are only necessary for very heavy duty projects. They can be used to create very large and sturdy desks and dining tables.

We also offer bench-height legs (16 inch) in 12mm thickness so you can have a matching set for your table, if required.

We do indeed. Check out our Professional account for larger, or more regular, orders.  You can apply for an account here.

All our legs come with free wood screws. They’re suitable for good- condition solid wood, thicker than 18mm.

If your wood is a bit rotten (old scaffold boards, for example), try to use the longest screws possible.

If the wood is really rotten, we suggest putting a nut and bolt the whole way through, to ensure safety. Or find another piece of wood!

For thinner tops (down to around 10mm), we suggest using threaded wood inserts.

Sorry – we make and finish our legs in sets of four. Delivering them in different quantities creates a lot of odd legs around the workshop, which is a bit of a nightmare!
