Wobbly Table... | Has Anyone...?

Ok I have read thread after thread about how to fix the FR issue where they only install two 2 1/2 inch posts for the dining room table.

Has anyone ever thought about getting the bunk bumper supports and mounting those under the table against the wall?

Any thoughts on if that would work? Would that be too much pressure against that wall? Would I need to find a stud on the back wall?

I don't like the wobble that the table has either. I thought about gutting 2 legs with wide feet and mounting to the underside of the table at either end. I have not thought about it 2 much yet so I will be interested in other suggestions and those who may have learned what does not work. I think it would need to be addressed at both ends to be completeley stable.

Good idea for the u-shaped dinette. I have a regular dinette with a bench on either side. I don't think adding a 3rd leg would work right for me. I'd need to remove 1 of the legs and have holes in my carpet.

Same With Me

I think I am going to look at attaching bunk bumpers to the wall just under the table. While it will not offer the most concrete solution, no one will be sitting or standing on the table either.

If the table is close to the wall, put a couple of door hinges on the wall/table and just pull/insert the pins to either attach/detach from wall.

Drill the heads of the pins and attach a string to the heads and wall to keep from loosing the pins.

Question about the floor?

I need to replace my mechanism on my table and want to put 2 pedestals. My dinette is in a slideout, what is under the floor? Will I be able to put at least a 1/2" screw in the floor to mount the base of the pedestal?

We don't use or plan to use our table for extra sleeping room as it becomes a bed too. What I did was simply use a fairly long angle bracket from the framing connection section in Home Depot. A Simpson product. Sprayed it black and screwed it into the wall with short screws and up into the table. Solid as a rock.
