The previously small footprint of the legs of this round table base had an issue. The table used pedestal table extension slides. When it was extended to accept a table leaf, the table tended to tip if too much downward pressure was put on either end of the table top. The only viable solution was to extend the base. I removed two of the rails and replaced them with elongated rails. It extended the leg footprint by nine inches and solved the tipping issue.

Three simple stools made of poplar. 15” X 22” X 14” tall. Because they'll eventually upholstered, no fancy joinery was used. The aprons are attached with pocket hole screws and glue. The tops are removable to simplify the upholstering process.
