I picked up this round carved "tabletop" that has 3 carved out circles for legs. I don't have the legs.  What I am trying to find out is what to call this to be able to find out what kind of legs it had. What would you call the design on it? 25 1/2" diameter. Thanks for any help.

The first image does not open properly...for me, anyway.  I would like to see the whole design.

Based on the diameter, I would say it is a wooden round side accent table.  The legs usually being pretty simple and straight.  I would still like to see the pattern on top.  It reminds me of a ceiling rose, or ceiling medallion, sort of...from what I can see in the second image.

Molly..I have tried everything. When I load a picture it is so big you can't make it out. I change the pixels and it won't center the picture and you don't see it all. I have never had this trouble before. Sorry and thanks for your help anyway.

The carving looks like it is supposed to be from a far-away place, but was likely made with a tourist market in mind. Some similar items come up if you search Polynesian furniture. Or, you could search Anglo-Indian furniture, but most Indian pieces seem to have more minute detail. I would suspect the legs were probably turned, then carved with a motif similar to the table top. The table gives off a 1950s-70s vibe to me.

Thank you. I will check it out.

wood looks like red cedar which is very soft and easily carved. The "medallion pattern" was probably carved using a computer or laser guided tool. Hitachi makes tools like that. Circa 1990s-now.

Straight legs or angled, including the metal connectors, screws, etc.  can be purchased at retail lumber stores, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. Easy to install. Because the wood is soft I would cut some stronger wood (oak, ash, pine, et al) and glue/screw it to the table, then install the hardware to it.

I had no trouble opening your links.

Thanks Tom. I will do as you suggest and get those metal connectors.

Look over these screw on legs to get an idea what's available. https://www.google.com/search?q=screw-on+legs+for+furniture&cli...

Thanks Tom. There sure is a lot to choose from.

Ah...I see it now.  It worked for me today?
