Dining Tables

This view shows the table being expanded. Each of the eight segments is pulled fully outward creating a space to place a leaf. Custom wooden 'spin locks' secure each segment to its adjoining leaf from beneath. This view also shows the brass 'saddle'  tips that reinforce the leading point of each veneered segment and leaf. These also serve to allign all the points where they converge.Pie segmented expanding pedestal table

This dining table was designed to seat up to 12. It expands from its closed form, a 5' rounded octagon, to its fully open form, a 7' circle.

The basic top is veneered with a 16 piece matched mahogany crotch with each of the eight pie shaped segments banded with fiddleback mahogany and tipped in brass. The eight spear shaped leaves are of quilted mahogany, similarly banded and tipped; they store in a seperate wheeled storage box. The spiral fluted pedestal base and reeded legs are of Hondorus mahogany. The lions paw feet are carved of brazilian rosewood.

To expand the table each of the eight segment top pieces is slid outward, creating a space for one of the leaves to be placed in; all ajoining pieces are then locked to each other creating the fully expanded table.
