Kumihimo -- Table to Marudai

I found a side table at a yard sale that looked like a perfect marudai-to-be, at home I had a wooden dinner plate just the right size for the top.

However, I did learn that 3 legs on your marudai is a problem, at least if they sit near the edge of the top. Since kumihimo is based on 4 quadrants, one of the legs ends up being in the way when you're picking up the bobbins. In the future, all my homemade marudais will be 4 legged!
