Checked out, and the beautiful Alissa-legs arrived today. They look great, and look forward to get them under this walnut slab.  Finished pics forthcoming.

BT,

Put some winding sticks across the upside down legs to see if you need a shim so that the legs sit perfect on the floor with no wobble.  Of course, all your slabs are probably flat  :).  Mine are not  :) :)

Thanks for the reminder.
I just did that, and I have to add a 1mm shim to one leg to get it perfect to my eye using 4' sticks.
An old CD disc was a bit too much, and it was 1.1mm. 

Maybe I just need to add a coat of paint to the leg on that end, and sand the other end lightly..  ;D

On the three that I have made, I had to shim about 1/4" on all three.  Georgia slabs must be more kinky than Wisconsin slabs :D

This one is a walnut slab that I bought in 1964 with the intentions of making a coffee table, but could never decide on the right legs for it. So it was relegated to stand up against the wall behind the piano.
Never figured it would even stay flat, let alone not twisted.
Anxious to get the Alissa legs attached and place it in our great room. We think they are the right legs for this slab.
Hope it likes its new home as good as 50+ years behind the piano. ;)

You have a very patient slab.

Finally found the time to re-oil the slab, and getting ready to mount the new legs. Used 400 wet/dry paper to give it a smooth oiled finish.

Wow.  That is one of the most gorgeous walnut slabs that I have ever seen.  The oil finish is perfect.
