I'm not familiar with what comes in the Wolf-pup, is the pipe style or the folding style? In our Flagstaff we had the folding style and had to add a couple of braces to eliminate the wobble:



Our Surveyor has the same style table, but it doesn't seem as wobbly as the one in the Flagstaff was. I think that's because of how the legs were orientated to the table top. In the Flagstaff, it was along the short width, so there was a lot of table to support around the pivot. In the Surveyor, it's along the longer length, so not as much pivoting.

Sounds like a good plan.

We travel with our son and my DW did not like stepping on the old table base when she sits in the back. She likes to go barefoot in the RV.
The Sequoia table legs locked the base of the legs. This stabilize the table legs.

Great ideas! I just had our wobbly table upside down so I could tighten all the screws but didn't find any very loose.

That is exactly the problem we have in our Flagstaff! The table has too much surface area to adequately support it. Kaadk, can you provide more details on the braces you cite above? Where did you get them?

I have the same style and was very wobbly. Turns out the bases were screwed through the carpet and were barely into the wood below. Used a utility knife and cut all around the bases. Removed the bases and the carpet below that was just cut out. Reinstalled the bases directly to the wood. Don't over tighten the screws, just very snug. Much, much better now.

Your style is different because this table is freestanding and just rests on the carpet.

I got them from “Father In Law’s Shop”

They’re just pieces of flat stock he had on hand that he cut to size for me, and then screwed them on using some self tapping bolts.
