We’ve all experienced the frustration of sitting at a wobbly restaurant table.

Perhaps the maître d’ noticed too, and swiftly slid a makeshift shim under the offending leg.

‘Ah, all better.’

I’ve especially noticed uneven tables at cafes and coffee shops. These tables are moved so often and/or set-up on uneven ground… rarely do they ever sit steady.

But there’s a simple solution. A three-legged table.

A three-legged table steadies itself on nearly any surface.

If you are going to buy a small top table with the center post (like pictured), why ever buy four legs, when three work better?
