Our Bronze Hardware Kits allow you the flexibility to further customize your table by providing your own wooden tabletop and bases for the feet of the table. Kits are perfect for carpenters, DIY enthusiasts, or those who want a table made from wood that has meaning to them (such as a tree or building from a family property).
Each kit includes five bronze pieces--two feet featuring the couple's names and date, two rings, and a cross to be inlaid into any wooden tabletop. (The cross also works as a key to join natural cracks in reclaimed wood or live-edge tables.) Steel legs and all the hardware needed for assembly are also included.
How To Make a Table from a Bronze Hardware Kit
1. Personalize your bronze hardware.
You'll provide the first names of the bride and groom (or recipients) and the wedding or event year that will be cast in bronze.
2. Source your own wood (and/or craftspeople) to make your tabletop.
Our Bronze Hardware Kit allows you to create or commission a wooden tabletop and bases for the table feet yourself. This also lets you put your history, creativity, and handiwork into the table to make it even more special.
3. Assemble the table.
The cross piece is designed to be set into a wooden tabletop as an inlay. You can cut a hole for it using the traditional chisel method, or you can use a router.
Attaching the legs to your tabletop is easy. Everything needed to assemble the table is provided along with instructions.
Your kit will include five bronze pieces—two feet, two rings, and a cross to be inlaid into a wooden tabletop—as well as two steel legs and the hardware needed to assemble your table.
1. After creating your own wooden tabletop, you can use a router or the traditional chisel method to cut a hole for the bronze cross piece. It can then be set into the tabletop as an inlay.
2. Along with the tabletop, you will also need to create wooden bases to attach to the bottom of the bronze feet.
3. Once your tabletop is ready, remove the packing material from the items in your kit, except for the stretch wrap around the rings encircling the table legs. (This will keep the rings from sliding up and down the legs during assembly.)
4. Place the tabletop upside down on a soft surface.
5. Mount the sockets provided in the kit to the bottom of the tabletop.
6. Insert the legs into the sockets, making sure that the names and date are facing out.
7. Using the Allen wrench and screws provided, tighten the screws so that the feet/bases are parallel with each other and 90 degrees to the linear orientation of the table.
8. Place the table upright. Then check if any leveling is needed. Leveling casters are provided in case they need to be attached to the bottom of the wooden bases. They can be turned in or out to eliminate any rocking due to a less-than-level floor.
9. Remove the stretch wrap from the rings on the legs.
