Hi Landis,

this sounds exactly like what I need, but I'm not sure that I follow - 
if you say you need a "bom for each", then you basically mean defining 
each leg as a separate product, which you include in the main BoM; so 
there's a production step in between where a leg becomes a leg1, and 
then becomes part of the table. Am I right? Or are you talking about 
some other kind of serialization, that I don't yet know about?
