Dining Table

Postby Dave R » Sat Oct 14, 2017 12:51 am

I thought I'd share some images of a dining table I designed for clients in New York City. They wanted an extension table large enough to seat 10, or even 12, for their frequent large Friday night meals but they wanted it to suit their smaller family the rest of the week. They asked for a wood top and steel base. This is what I presented.


With the leaves in.


I spec'd equalizer slides from Osborne Wood Products which worked quite nicely.


And here are pictures of the finished table in place. The table was built in Hendersonville, NC.



Unfortunately those are the best photos I have.

:thumb: :thumb: This is an awesome table Dave - I love the look of the Steel frame below!
Do the the additional wooden boards get stored in there as well? and did you have also developed the pull-out mechanism yourself - looks very complicated ;)

Thank you.

I tried to get the leaves to store in the table but the client wanted fixed apron pieces on the leaves so they wouldn't fit. The extension mechanism is a commercially available thing. It is designed so when you move one side, the other side of the top also moves.

Most impressive ! I'm usually not a big fan of metal bases on dining tables but your design has a strong organic element to the base it pretty much mitigates my usual objections to mixing the two materials. Great job :thumb: :thumb:

Excellent work, as always. The table must weigh a ton, though.
Best,

Thank you, David. Apparently it was quite heavy. No worries about it tipping when someone leans on the end, though. :D
