The turned Victorian legs were cut off and replaced
with simple square section legs made from laminated offcuts of various
timber species, resulting in random contrasting stripes.
The apron was trimmed, allowing plenty of room for user's legs to
fit underneath. The frame and joints were also reinforced to ensure
The table-top sides were cut to remove the rounded corners. They
were replaced with strips of Vic Ash to restore the original width.
To create the additional length required, Vic Ash "breadboard"
ends were placed on both ends of the table. Breadboard ends "float"
on the ends of the table-top and allow for lateral expansion and
contraction of the table-top.
The table was designed for large family gatherings and can comfortably
accommodate 14 people.
