Pedestal table base

The previously small footprint of the legs of this round table base had an issue. The table used pedestal table extension slides. When it was extended to accept a table leaf, the table tended to tip if too much downward pressure was put on either end of the table top. The only viable solution was to extend the base. I removed two of the rails and replaced them with elongated rails. It extended the leg footprint by nine inches and solved the tipping issue.

Very sharp. Nice high contrast in the wood.

Incredible shape. You must have had hard time to join all those curved legs.
