What you need to know

Our hairpin legs are a midcentury modern, timeless classic ready for your next build.

Made in our Wisconsin factory from recycled steel, each haripin leg is built with care to last a lifetime. 

Our standard hairpin legs are great for projects where the top isn't too heavy - for a heavy top or the most rigidity, we recommend 3 Rod hairpin legs or our other table bases.

Product Details & Specifications

Measure twice, cut once. We provide our specs right up front so you have the details you need to plan your build.

For Hairpin Legs, we offer two thicknesses of the metal rod: 3/8" (standard) and 1/2" (heavy-duty).

Product Care

Clear & Color Powder Coats

Our powder-coat finishes are scratch-resistant and rust-proof, so they don't need much care. Just be sure to touch up any exposed steel if you happen to drag them across rough surfaces, such as pavers, or scrape them with something sharp.

Raw Steel Care

Raw steel arrives with a thin layer of residue to protect it from rust while in transit. Sealing your raw steel with wax, paint, or a clear coat will keep it looking its best (or you can let it develop a natural rusted patina).

  • Raw steel legs ship with wax for sealing
  • Apply a rust-inhibitive clear coat rather than wax if using outdoors
  • Sprayed finishes work best for paint or clear coat (use products that are suitable for metal)

Build Instructions

You can attach your Hairpin Legs with just a few simple tools. With preformed holes, they're easy to attach. Here are a few basic steps to help you get started.

  • Turn your surface upside down and use a tape measure to position your Hairpin Legs.
  • Mark each base plate hole with a pencil, and remove the Hairpin Legs.
  • Pre-drill a pilot hole over each pencil mark. (Pre-drilling makes things easier and helps avoid damaging your surface material. Marking your drill bit with a piece of tape will help ensure you don't drill too far.)
  • Reposition your Hairpin Legs, and drive your screws/fasteners through the base plate holes into your surface.
  • Confirm the Hairpin Legs are securely attached, then turn your project right side up. (Having someone help you lift larger projects will keep screws/fasteners from pulling away from your surface material.)

(Change/modification fees must be paid over the phone at the same time as requested. Fees will be deducted from the subtotal and all shipping costs will be fully refunded if canceled.)
