What’s the difference between table legs and table bases?

Table legs are commonly referred to as straight legs or post legs. Table legs are simple tubular uprights, like our 2-inch round and square legs, which are usually packaged 4 per box. A single table leg can be used to hold a peninsula top. Sets of 4 table legs will hold round, rectangle, and square tables. Table bases are formed from a combination of horizontal and vertical steel tubes welded together. Our most common table bases are T-bases, C-bases, H-bases, O-bases, A-bases, and U-bases. Packed in sets of 2, they are utilized most on rectangular work surfaces or tops. Our X-bases for round and square tables are packaged individually.
