I need a little bit of help. I have a table that I need to raise about 2 1/2 to 3". My arm chairs do not fit underneath the table and this bothers me. Rather then buy all new chairs or a new table. I was wondering if it is possible to put something underneath the legs to raise it up a bit.
This table is a wooden table w/ square legs, four of them. The legs are shaped almost just like this picture. I suppose I need something like the item pictured; just more height to raise the table. Anyone ever done this, seen this, or know where I can find something to achieve this?

MD's suggestion is the ideal solution, but that would not be a minor task. And if the table legs are tapered it would be even more difficult, even for a weekend woodworker.
I find that when you try to modify something (which I do frequently) if it’s not feasible to match a feature, then often the best avenue is to go out of your way to contrast the union.
Done properly this often brings about an artsy, ironic, stylish. or whimsical results.
For your project I’d look for something that would fit in with the table leg ethos. Additionally the solution would be inexpensive, easy to source, and easy to implement.
