Does anyone have an idea of what stitch this is here? I feel like this should be obvious but I can't figure it out!

Looks like a regular old knit stitch to me.

I would say garter stitch, plain stitch, knitted with very big neeedles,every row is knit.

Yeah it looks like garter stitch to me as well.

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.

Knit all rows (no purls).

It is garter stitch on large needles, not so thick yarn. But it's knit in the round so you'd have to knit one round, purl one round to get garter, otherwise it'd come out as stockinette if you knit every round, unless it is and folded up so the purl side is on the outside.

Since I tend to forget to switch knit/purl when I do garter in the round, I'd knit it in garter flat then carefully seam the 2 sides together. If the stitches weren't slipped at the beginning of the row, it's a bulk-less seam that's nearly invisible.

I think you might be right about that. The stitch 'bumps' in rows don't look far enough apart to be garter stitch.

Yeah, it could just be the purl side of stockinette showing. Without another view, it's had to say for sure.

I agree. It looks like reverse stockinette knit sideways and then sewn shut into a tube and the two ends attached together.
