This table must sit across the threshold of a walk-in / sit-down shower, with the shower curtain draped across the table to keep the water inside.
Because the shower floor is slightly higher than the bathroom floor, I conjured a set of foot pads to raise the outside legs:
The sloping top surface on the pads compensates for the angle on the end of the table legs:
I think the leg mold produces legs for several different tables, with the end angle being Close Enough™ for most purposes. Most likely, it’d wear flat in a matter of days on an actual patio.
Using good 3M outdoor-rated foam tape should eliminate the need for fiddly screw holes and more hardware:
The feet fit reasonably well:
They may need nonskid tape on those flat bottoms, but that’s in the nature of fine tuning.
And, as with the narrow table, it may need foam blocks to raise the top surface to arm level. Perhaps a pair of Yoga Blocks will come in handy for large adjustments.
