  2. Clean the surface of your marble or granite top using alcohol or water;
  3. Place the metal table legs on the tabletop;
  4. Use the marker to mark the location where the table legs will be placed on the surface;
  5. After that, remove the table legs and apply the proper amount of epoxy to the designated location;

Option 2: Using mounting plates and threaded inserts

To utilize this approach, selecting metal table legs that already have mounting plates is the ideal choice. This will save time in connecting different mounting plates to the table legs. Mounting plates should be created by artists and experts using specialized technology to preserve the aesthetic value of your metal table legs.
