Cut the PVC pipe into four even pieces with are two feet long each. Use the measuring tape and the pencil to mark the pipe. Use the pipe cutter or saw to make the cuts.
Determine how much higher you want the table to be. Measure that distance from one end of one of each pipe section. Make a mark at that location. This location should be no more than of one-third the length of the pipe.
Drill a hole through the pipe at that mark. Place a bolt through the holes on both sides of the pipe. Screw the nut into the bolt.
Repeat this for all other pieces of pipe, measuring the height difference, drilling and securing the bolt.
Place the extenders onto the table legs so that the legs are inside of the pipe and are resting on the bolts.
Things You Will Need
- 8-foot long PVC pipe, 1/2 inch wider than the table leg
- Pipe cutter or saw
- Measuring tape
- Drill with 1/2-inch bit
- 4 bolts, 1/2 inch
- 4 nuts
- The PVC pipe must be between one half inch and one inch wider in diameter than the table legs. This will allow the PVC to easily slip onto the legs, but keep a snug fit to secure the extenders on the legs.
- In order to hide the bolts, buy a longer table cloth that reaches the ground. This way, the table will look like its supposed to be that height.
