The base was an odd height though…too short to use comfortably as a dining table and too tall to use as a coffee table. It would have made a decent height end table but 42" round, just too large.
I had these casters laying around and because I wanted to do a metallic finish on the table anyway, thought they would add nicely to the 'industrial' feel I was going for. Not to mention they added 4"…which now would make the table a perfect height.
I removed the original T-nuts that were on the bottom. Not only were they too small to accommodate my casters, I wanted ones that I could nail in for extra strength.
Using a drill bit that was going to make we work a little to pound the new T-nuts in, I drilled a hole.
Here I am testing the depth of the hole I am making. I made sure I only drilled down as far as I had to for my casters to screw in securely.
After hammering in the T-nuts, I added nails. These nails here small so I did a little pre-drill for each.
Ready for casters!
These casters can lock so that the table will not move unless you want it to.
