How To Raise Long Sofa Table
Long sofa table are available in all types of styles and sizes. Unfortunately, people also do it. What may be perfect for a person may seem a little too long or too short for someone else. If the coffee table is less than the perfect height for you, it may be easier than you think to fix it. One of these alternative methods is sure to work for your particular coffee table style.
Measure up the coffee table and buy a glass table tops the same size as your table surface and as thick as possible. Place small rubber or wooden spacers or “feet” under glass on top of the table surface at the corners. Set the glass over the table and check the new height. If necessary, use higher spacers to raise the height.
Turn the long sofa table over and mark the center of each leg in the bottom. Drill a whole straight down into each leg to a depth of at least 1 inch. Cut a plug of suitable size — at least ¼ inch in diameter — into four equal pieces to use as pins. Put the carpenter’s glue on the end of a stick and insert it into the hole in the leg as far as possible. Repeat the procedure for each leg. Measure the deep inner hole of one of the wooden balls or end buds by inserting a small wire or sticking as far as it goes and mark the depth of the surface. Cut each plug pin into the table legs to that length.
