I have bought 4 poles ( was long one but i cut it )

Made sure it`s the same height, and attached them all to some bas ei build ( from wood )

Step 3: Drown It !

Once you finished mixing the mixture of sand , water , and cement

" Drown " the base of the legs and make sure it sitting good

Step 4: Check With Leveler

Make sure it`s the same height

Let it dry for 12 hours and then poor 1/2 a liter of water to the cement - it will obserb in it - that way the cement will be stronger

Step 5: After Two Days

Seems good

Step 6: Remove the Plastic Box

Slowly remove the plastic box from the table

Clean the sides and remove leftovers

Step 7: Paint the Legs

Choose some random color, and paint the legs

Use a duck tape to mark the exact place fo

Step 8: Remove the Duck Tape

Step 9: Paint It!

i painted it , 3 layers

Let it dry between one layer and the other

Step 10: Padding

Add beneath the legs some padding , for it to move easy

    Hey

    Thanks for the comment , it was very easy to remove, thought it would stick to it , but all i had to do was shake it a bit , and it removed almost perfectly

    Yes, a few chips broke , but it`s very easy to fix, since all you need to do is make a bit more cement mix , apply it , let it dry , sand it , and your` done

    :)
