1. Choose a table top that is the appropriate size for your cast iron legs. You can purchase a pre-made table top or make your own out of wood or another material.
2. Sand the table top to a smooth finish and stain or paint if desired. Apply a coat of polyurethane for added protection.
3. Determine the placement of your table legs on the underside of the table top. Mark the screw hole locations with a pencil.
4. Drill pilot holes at the marked locations using a power drill.
