    Yeah, North Carolina! Really love this! I loved the white accent on the legs. Good job! Also that bit was hilarious.

    Such a cool project, great job on the hairpin legs!

    Love the idea of the hairpin leg floor protectors – I have a little side table with hairpin legs, and my solution was just to stick some little felt pad protectors on the bottom. Works well enough, and doesn't take away from the look too much.

    Have you thought about making the protectors so that the legs click or lock into them? Probably not a big deal for large or heavy pieces that don't get moved much, but I pick up my little side table just about as often as I slide it around, and I'd find it pretty annoying if the floor protectors had to be moved separately.

    Cant you buy a rub like tape for the legs so it won't scratch the floor? Anywhere good idea to design something and have 3d printed somewhere else and delivered to you the end result

    I was literally thinking about how I'd make these yesterday

    Why not split clear rubbrt tube into a diy split loom that could be used with the hairpin legs. It could keep your floors scratch free, and would allow your table to not slide around.

  32. Josh Adams

    Would be cool, since you're making your own, to use white shrink wrap around the metal rod instead of painting it. Could provide floor protection and your accent color!

    The ghost scene…oh wow lol. So good. Shspeways is great. I get my protectors that come in a bunch of colors from another company. As others have suggested, they clip on and are a bit more pliable. If you pick up the table, the protector stays connected.

    Glad Johnny came in to help you on that last weld…was a disaster up until that point! Where did you get the music for this vid btw – it sounds different than what you usually use but works super well!

    Bring the edge of the plastic up more and it can clip on

    Can you add a finder washers to the bottom of the legs the holes in the washers could be useful for tack welding and put smaller round felt pads on them?

    Love the 3D printed protectors – maybe add a 'nub' to the opening so they 'click' onto base of the leg? But I'd buy them – if my wife would ever let me put hairpin legs on something ;P

    Absolutely hilarious at 5:17! Man, I really like the look of those legs at 15 degrees. Something so small can have such a huge impact. I think this is one of your best videos, Mike!

    You look great in those glasses, dude!

    Why wouldn’t you make it click in rather than just sit on.
