At first glance, this free-standing dining table built by our friends at Around the Table, looks just like a standard dining table, until you notice that the legs of the chairs are a bit taller than most dining chair legs. This counter-height table was built using Osborne’s Wilmington Island Post (Part #1408), which is 34.5″ tall, and beautifully supports the richly-finished table top. For a modern, up-to-date look in any kitchen or dining area, a popular choice is a “tall” table made with island legs, with bar stools and other seating traditionally used at an island.
It seems apparent that counter-height tables are here to stay, and are not just a fad. Many who select taller tables say that they love not having to work so hard to get up from their chairs, and the better views when seated six inches higher than normal. Another advantage of taller tables is that pets and children have a more difficult time reaching goodies left on the table.
Osborne Wood Products carries a diverse line of island legs, which are available in at least ten wood types, sanded to 150 grit and ready to finish. These skillfully-crafted legs are sure to find a home in your next furniture design.
Island legs come completely unfinished without any holes or hardware. However, with Osborne’s millwork and installation services you are guaranteed a perfect fit! Work directly with a customer service representative to determine if your island leg needs hardware installed, a chamfer, or other services to simplify your design process. Have your legs shipped ready to simply install and finish, using the variety of services offered at Osborne.
