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 65105152. 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.
