I want to convert a round solid oak pedestel table to a 4 leg table... not sure how to approach this and have a "stable table" (no pun intended)...
How would I cut table legs (mede for a square table) to fit to a round table? And should they be attached to the outside ot inside of the skirt? The skirt is also solid oak, 1 1/4" thick.
Is there a place on line where table legs can be purchased with this cut for a round table application already in them?
I'm clueless on this... any advice or help would be appreciated!

Been there, done that - no fun. It's not easy, specially if you're wanting splayed legs. I had a customer that wanted that. I had to rabbit the legs to butt flush against the rail plus looked right. Then I had to add wood under the table top to stabilize the legs so they didn't wiggle too much.

Unless you have advanced skills, sell your table and look for another one instead. This is not a simple project, it's easy to mess this one up 'big time'. Once modified, there's not turning back.
