    Do a search for pedestal table legs.

    Hey

    I would call that an end for a trestle table base. When the column is square like that I call them a Square cut column and the round type is a Turned column.

    Can you buy them ?
    Ive never seen them for sale by themselves.

    I have seen tables made here supposedly and I think the bases were made O/S and imported . The seller adds the tops and offers different sizes that way . They don't sell just the bases or base ends though.

    I make that sort of table. I'm doing one right now. The cost of the wood for its base was probably approaching $500 each end . Then add three days to build them both .
    Im not looking for work , just saying that the pictured one is cheap . And probably made o/s with cheap labour on a very fast cnc where possible then finished and assembled by hand.

    edit
    One way of doing your own would be to ask a wood turner to turn you the two columns and you do the rest. Or go find a workshop nearby who can join and machine up the top and base plates as well . Then you just have to cut the joins and assemble .
