Extending tables

Leaves can extend the table by 24 , 30 and even 40'' as long as there's still room for a sturdy central board (x) for the leaf batons to rest against. See drawing below.

See notes near the bottom of the page for help on pricing your table

NOTES TO HELP YOU CHOOSE and PRICE YOUR TABLE

Tapered / turned legs

For parallel or tapered legs deduct 10% from the prices shown below

Cabriole legs

A bit tricky to make. Add 10% to the cost of your table

Cross leg or Tressle

Same price as table with turned legs. Prices at bottom of page

Stretchers

To include stretchers (pic 4)  add 10% of the price of your  table to the listed price. But see 'Tapered legs'

Drawers

Drawers are £45 each

Painted legs and frame

For white painted furniture add 10% to the price shown.  For any other colour add 10%. plus the price and the cost of p&p of your 750ml tin of paint. You keep what's left.

Dimensions

General dimensions for a 48'' ext. table are shown below.  5' and  6' tables look better with a 3.25'' leg . See pic 3

.

Table Height

Although 30'' (760mm) is often quoted as the standard height, you may find that 29'' (737mm) or 29.5''  (750mm)  is more comfortable. Much depends on the height of the chair, of course, and the family member heights.
Coffe table height - deduct 5%

Top thickness

Standard thickness is 3/4 '' (20mm)  For a  1'' to 1.25'' (25 to 32mm)  thick top add 5%  For a top thicker than 32mm (32-50mm) add 7.5%.   1'' tops are not recommended for ext. tables

Number of boards

To make up the top I can use either 7or 8  boards of 4 and 5'' widths or use just 4 or 5 boards of 7 ,8 , or 9''  widths

Joining the boards

I can round off the edges of the boards to make them look like old oak boards which were not glued together but just fixed to batons underneath. See pic 11

Breadboard ends

Breadboard ends (see pic 5) give a neat finish to the table ends.To fix them, requires a little extra work. Add 5%

Varnished / oiled top

I use an acrylic varnish or teak oil for table tops. Acrylic varnish has a warmer/ softer feel than polyurethane varnish and is just as durable.

For two coats of varnish or teak oil add 10% of the cost of the table to the listed price of your table. For more info on a varnished top see the page 'Paint / Lacquer /Polish'

Leaf prices

The leaf price includes all the extra work that making a table with ext. leaves involves

2 x 12'' leaves are 15% of the table price . Add 15% to the cost of the table. Prices below

2 x 15'' leaves are 15% of the table price. Add 15% .  For  2 x 18'' leaves add 17.5%
