Topic tags/keywords: tip

A 3 legged chair, table, etc is much more stable than anything with 4 or more legs. There are leg adjusters that are used to level a table, and they are usually put on each leg. That is not necessary. Just cut one leg a bit shorter than the other three and put an adjuster on just that one leg. The other three legs will seek their own level and the leg with the adjuster will correct the level.

Just because a 3 legged table is stable on an uneven surface doesn’t mean it is level. If you need it to sit level on a non-level surface, you will need to adjust more than one leg.

By lever, I mean “reasonably level”, not perfectly level.

Have your say...
