Table Tops and Bases

Buying Guide

Header Image

Our laminated, reversible table tops are available in a variety of standard sizes. We offer two styles in each size. Each size is available in either a walnut / oak finish or a cherry / black finish. All our reversible laminated table tops are easy to clean and feature a vinyl strip around the edge to prevent scuffing and chipping!

Round or Square Base

Round Bases

Round table bases are often chosen to match round table tops. A round table top attached to a round table base is generally more stable than a round table top attached to a square table base. Round table bases are also easier to vacuum and sweep around. However, they do not allow chairs to be pushed in fully, so if aisle or floor space is at a premium, a round table base may not be the best choice.

Cross Bases

Cross table bases are more difficult to clean around, but allow chairs to be pushed in further than with round table bases. Because of this, they are often preferred for rectangular or square table tops, but they can also be used for round table tops.



So which table base goes with which table top? See our sizing chart below for recommendations!

Please Note: These are minimum recommendations for our table tops and our bases. If your tabletops are unusually thick and/or heavy, we recommend choosing a base at least two sizes larger than the minimum, along with a 4" column. The WEBstaurant Store does not recommend attaching any table top larger than 30" round or square to a bar height table base.
