The Green Table gets remade.
It was too wiggly, and too tall, so I took 3" off of each leg, and installed braces at the corners and between braces on the horizontal bars.
Round bar such as rebar has very little resistance to bending, unlike angle iron or square tube, both of which I use frequently when building furniture, so it's neccesary to design for extra stiffness.
