What kind of table top can I use? Any top you have can be used on an iron table base whether that be stone, wood, or glass your options are nearly limitless. How much weight does the iron base hold? Our bases will hold quite a bit of weight and probably more than your going to be able to put on it. Anything your creative table top artisan can build we have a base for it. Generally if your table top weighs in at less than 400 pounds you’ll be safe but if your concerned at all just give us a call and ask 957-1178. If you need extra support we can build it to work for your top. What are my finish options? Please read about the finishes we offer below. Don’t see the color or finish you want, order natural black and have it custom painted at a shop in your area. Can these bases be used outside? The bases on this page are recommended for indoor use. All of our bases have full welds and a very durable finish that can weather the elements quite well. If your must use your table base outside keep under cover, away from heavy moisture and bring it in during the winter months. To keep the finish looking new and moisture away apply an outdoor furniture wax regularly. Finally, its iron and unless its made of stainless steel or aluminum it might eventually need a new finish after years of outdoor use. Will My Table Top Fit? Do you want overhangs? If you do simply subtract the table bases width from the width of your table top and divide that sum by 2. This will give you the overhang you can have on each side of the table. All table bases should support at least 1/3 of your table top area. Lets say you have a 72 x 42-in Table top, take 72 multiply by 42 and you get the sum of 3,024. Divide that sum by 3 and you get 1,008. So you need to make sure you get a table base that supports at least 1,008 square inches or measures at least 32 x 32-in to support your 72 x 42-in table top.

In the last few years, we have introduced some table bases with multiple columns (RFL750x3, RSQ750x4, Plaza-1828, 2000-2230 and the Bruni Series). The major advantage of these bases is that the load is now distributed over a wider area, eliminating the problem of flexing. Depending on your functional or aesthetic needs, an alternative to a single base with multiple columns is to place several smaller table bases under your top. Three small disk bases clustered under a large granite table will accomplish the same goal of providing sufficient weight distribution under the table.

When it comes to choosing a table base for your heavy stone top, the style of the base is also quite important. Vintage style table bases have an advantage over the more contemporary units because they feature not only a cast iron bottom, but also a cast iron column. There are two reasons to recommend a base with a cast iron column, the first being that they are generally heavier than a contemporary base of equivalent size. The second is that with very heavy table tops, it is also possible to cause flexing in the steel column of some table bases. With such a large amount of weight balanced on a single column and bolt in the center of a table, it can begin to feel “spongy”. For more information about why cast iron is great for table bases, please see our article, A Brief Introduction to Cast Iron.

When someone asks for advice on selecting a table base for a granite or marble table top, the first question we always ask is “What is the size of your tabletop and how thick is it?” Obviously, the larger the size of your tabletop, the larger a table base you will need. Most of our table bases can hold very large amounts of weight, we are talking about cast iron and steel tubing. It would take a huge amount of weight to crush a table base. However, the real concern is the stability of your table base; a heavy tabletop coupled with a light weight table base creates a high center of gravity, which can cause your table to tip over.

One final thing to keep in mind, is that all of the above recommendations and the recommended table bases on Tablebases.com are based strictly on industry “rules of thumb” and the experience of our customers over many years. A base that works in one situation may not work for your specific application. A wobbly table is rarely caused by a defective table base, more often it is because the table base is too small, too light, or there is too much weight on a single column, the floor is uneven, the screws are not holding in the sub-top, or any number of factors that are out of our hands. We always recommend you order a single sample base to tet with your table before ordering a large quantity. Choose your table bases carefully, they should always be large and heavy enough to keep your table steady and safe.
