Daily Tip June 20: How to Get a Leg Up at a Show!

Dale, you talked out adding PVC pipes to the legs of your tables to raise the table height. How do we know how wide and long of PVC pipe to buy?

You’re right, Leslie, I did a video tip on how to make your display stand out at a show, which is available here: Raising Table Legs For Your Next Show.
To find the length of pipe you’ll need, measure the distance from the bend or support bar in the table leg to the floor and add whatever distance you wish to add to the table height. This is the necessary length of PVC pipe you need.
Now measure the distance across the center width of the leg’s foot and add a half-inch. This is how wide you need the pipe to be. Take the measurements to the store and ask them to help find the pipe you need. Most of us either cut the pipe ourselves, or have it cut at the place of purchase.
