DIY One Size Fits All Table Legs

Hafele 56-3/4" Taller Metal Table Legs Hafele 56-3/4″ Taller Metal Table Legs provide a versatile option for the do-it-yourselfer who requires table legs in a very specific custom height. Table legs come in common sizes depending on their use. Desk and kitchen table legs are generally around 28″, counter height table legs are roughly 36″, and bar height table legs are approximately 40″- 42″. Those dimensions are perfectly fine if you have a normal table installation; but, what if you require a 31-7/16″ table leg or a 48″ table leg for a fixed height standing desk? Custom taller table legs are difficult to come by and custom shorter table legs are generally only cut in 1″ increments. The answer is the Hafele 56-3/4″ Taller Metal Table Legs. This sturdy leg solves your custom height table leg problem in several ways:

DIY Height Adjustment
Hafele 56-3/4″ Taller Metal Table Legs can be cut down with a hack saw and a bit of elbow grease. Take copious and accurate measurements since cutting the leg too short cannot be undone. Cutting the leg to the size required will not reduce the weight capacity of the leg. Each leg can support a weight of 220lbs.

Fixed or rolling options
Hafele 56-3/4″ Taller Metal Table Legs can be ordered with a standard leveler that allows 1″ of height adjustment, a deluxe leveler that allows 4-1/4″ of height adjustment, or rolling casters that will add a fixed 4-1/4″ to the height of the leg; but, will allow tables and desks to be easily moved from one room to the next.

Interchangeable Components
The Hafele 56-3/4″ Taller Metal Table Leg is a hollow steel tube that is supplied with a threaded insert used to installed the mounting plate for the leg. The caster press fits into the hollow bottom of the leg. For unique situations such as floor mounted table legs, a second threaded insert and mounting plate can be installed at the bottom of the leg. This application is useful in boats and train cars.

Finish Options Available
With the Hafele 56-3/4″ Taller Metal Table Legs, you are not getting an unfinished steel tube. The legs are fully finished in a black textured finish, silver aluminum finish, polished chrome finish, or a brushed steel finish. The finishes are complementary for almost any decor.

The next time you find yourself in a pickle and need an odd size table leg, remember the Hafele 56-3/4″ Taller Metal Table Legs. Their versatility, strength, and the ease of cutting the legs—even for a novice—make them a lifesaver in a jam. “Jam” and “pickle” in the span of two sentences about table legs. I must be hungry.

Kitchen Countertop Shelf Supports

Kitchen Countertop Shelf SupportsWhether you’re looking for an elevated surface to rest drinks and plates, or if you need additional workspace for preparing meals, kitchen countertop shelf supports make it easy to create the space you’re looking for with minimal installation costs. With a wide variety of shapes and sizes available, it’s simple to find a countertop shelf support or angle bracket to fit in your kitchen, kitchen island, wet bar, butler pantry, or breakfast nook.

Style & Finish Options

Kitchen countertop shelf supports are available in square and round designs, and in both straight and angled configurations depending on whether you want the shelf rising directly above the countertop or leaning out over the edge of the lower countertop surface. Most countertop shelf support brackets are available in either a polished chrome or brushed stainless steel finish, ensuring that the support brackets will either accent existing metal finishes throughout the kitchen or, at the very least, not clash with various wood or painted finishes.

Why do I need additional countertop space?

Your new and/or elevated kitchen countertop surface can be used for a variety of purposes, ranging from the practical and functional to the purely aesthetic. Floating kitchen shelves provide the extra height needed to keep little hands away from drinks and food, or they can be used to create clean food and dirty food countertop zones during meal preparation, helping to thwart possible contamination from raw, uncooked foods. Kitchen countertop shelf supports also shorten the distance between guests and their plates during cocktail hour or dinner parties, and provide added emphasis to select entrees or centerpieces by elevating them above the rest of your display.

Installation Options

Most kitchen countertop shelf support brackets mount from underneath, through the existing countertop surfaces, and are then affixed to the new, elevated countertop shelf via a mounting flange at the top of the countertop support. If the application involves a new glass shelf or countertop, some kitchen surface supports are available with glass adapters that feature smooth, flat discs that accept glue to adhere glass to the support bracket. Also falling into this category of kitchen countertop hardware are vertical “side-mounted” shelf brackets that mount onto an existing cabinet or panel, resulting in a new countertop surface that is level with the old countertop.

Now that you’re one step closer to your dream kitchen, consider tackling other simple hardware projects to personalize and increase efficiency throughout your kitchen workspace. You could add wall mounted baskets or hooks in your pantry or mud room area, install low-profile sliding utility drawers under countertops for quick storage, or add task or mood lighting inside of closets or under cabinets with kitchen LED puck or strip cabinet lighting. Good luck!!

Easy Table Storage with Gibraltar Flip-Top Nesting Table Bases

Gibraltar Flip-Top Nesting Table BasesGibraltar Flip-Top Nesting Table Bases provide compact storage of desks and tables creating open space for facility cleaning or staging special events. My first thought when flip-top nesting tables are mentioned is my old high school cafeteria. Not because they had them; but, because they desperately needed them. In my high school, like so many other high schools around the country, the cafeteria was the center of school life. Student council elections were held in the cafeteria, bake sales for every school organization were held in the cafeteria, and pre-away game pep rallies were held in the cafeteria. The cafeteria was even the site of the senior and junior prom dances. For such a versatile space, tables and chairs would have to be moved and stored on a weekly basis; yet, without flip-top nesting table bases, the tables were awkwardly stacked in the courtyard adjoining the cafeteria. You heard that right. A beautiful outdoor space that could have been used in conjunction with the cafeteria space was used as storage.

The use of Gibraltar Flip-Top Nesting Table Bases doesn’t have to be restricted to the cafeteria. They can be useful in classrooms, conference rooms, church halls, libraries, and any convertible space. Gibraltar Flip-Top Nesting Table Bases can be easily converted into a folding position with the press of a lever. Now I know you’re wondering if two people are required to flip a table with two bases. Two people would be needed if the standard bases are ordered; however, unlike some other flip-top table bases on the market Gibraltar Flip-Top Nesting Table Bases are available with a nifty hand release that will allow a single person to flip and move a Gibraltar Flip-Top Nesting Table Base. Style divas will also appreciate the myriad table base designs and finishes available for Gibraltar Flip-Top Nesting Table Bases. Future-proof the tables in your facility with Gibraltar Flip-Top Nesting Table Bases.

Tie and Belt Racks for Dad: A New Approach to Father’s Day

BeltRack.3Tie and belt racks provide a convenient organizational solution for closets making ties and belts easy to access. Father’s Day…the day we celebrate Dad with a tie, or a tie, or a power drill, or a tie, or a belt, or a tie, or grill utensils, or a tie…sensing a pattern? Now that Dad has about a year’s worth of ties and nearly as many belts, surprise him with something only slightly different. A space saving tie rack will neatly display Dad’s vast collection of ties—some of which he may have forgotten he owned. A complementary matching belt rack will save Dad’s belts from being crushed under foot or hidden in remote corners of his closet. Tie and belt racks come in two forms: wall mounted racks or hanging organizers.

Wall Mounted Tie and Belt Racks

Wall Mounted Tie and Belt Racks are surface mounted to a wall in your closet or freestanding wardrobe cabinet. They are dead simple to install and remain in place until Dad wants to take it out. Some wall mounted tie and belt racks offer a slide feature that allows Dad to pull out the tie and belt rack for greater access and to display the ties and belts in his collections. Don’t limit gifting tie and belt racks just to Dad’s wardrobe either. Mom can utilize tie and belt racks to hang scarves, necklaces, or her own belts. She can even hang her ties—if your Mom happens to be Diane Keaton.

Hanging Tie and Belt Organizers

How easy is it to install a hanging tie and belt organizer? Can you hang clothes in your closet? Then you’ve mastered installation of this organizer. The assortment of Woodlore Hanging Tie and Belt Racks simply hang on the closet rod in your closet or wardrobe cabinet. No hardware included or required. The double whammy is that the Woodlore Hanging Tie and Belt Racks are made of solid cedar and smell fantastic. The delicious aroma isn’t appreciated by moths and other creepy crawlies making the Woodlore Hanging Tie and Belt Racks a natural bug repellent and clothing preservative.

This Father’s Day, let’s give Dad a reprieve from another year of ties and belts and help him organize his closet. Maybe get him a few tie and belt racks; because, after this year everything will be back to normal for Father’s Day. Tie anyone?

Essential Man Cave Accessories

CBMAC100_1Man Cave…simultaneously one of the most overused terms of the 21st century (right up there with “misspoke” and “like”) and a top requested new home feature. What exactly is a man cave? It is different things to different guys—some don’t even know what they want their own man cave to be. More often than not, the man cave becomes a billiard room while others see it as home to the mother of all entertainment systems. Almost any man cave is going to be heavy on media and technology. Let’s layout some essential man cave accessories that will form the foundation of your dream room:

Turntables and Swivel Plates
Your man cave is almost certainly going to have a TV. Whether it’s the grand poobah of TV’s or the black and white one from your youth, it’s absolutely essential that you not miss a single touchdown or homerun no matter what section of your man cave you occupy. Turntables and Swivel Plates will allow you to rotate that TV so that it’s viewable from all areas of your man cave. The turntables and swivel plates aren’t just for the TV though. Set your speakers on a turntable to optimize sound positioning for your media center. You can even build a lazy susan for your coffee table and optimize snack distribution.

Media Access Center
What’s the worst part of hooking up peripherals to your TV? Hooking up peripherals to your TV! You have to stretch and contort to get everything connected to your TV. And what happens if you upgrade your sound system or replace your old DVD player with a Blu-Ray player? The hunt begins to find the cable that goes from the DVD player to the TV through the twisted nest of cords and dust. Making a media access center a priority in your man cave will neatly organize your peripherals and save you the frustration of fussing with mangled, knotted cords and dust.

Motorized TV Lift
It’s a motorized TV lift. Need I say more? Actually, I will say a little bit more. The motorized TV lift conveniently stores up to a 50″ flat screen TV in a cabinet safe from dust and would be destroyers of your TV when it’s not in use. The motorized lift is remote control operated and frees additional surface area when the TV is not in use.

So there are a few of the man cave essentials that you will need to fully enjoy your new man cave. Now, the TV, pool table, and arcade games to buy you’ll have to figure out on your own.
