Nice thing about this table is you can usually find tables that people throw a way. I got my legs from a table someone gave me. It is also a no frills table but it can have trim added and change to suit ones own design. On mine I did not make the bottom lip very high, about 1/2 inch. I wish I had made it a little higher. I will make a change on it if I find I really need it a little higher. I am thinking of raising the lip a little higher on the right side for holding scrap paper for notes or calculating. I will see.
