Hey all, this is a table I built custom when I re-did my in-laws kitchen. The leg is a salvaged maple newel post, and the top is 1×6 maple, biscuit joined together (Norm would be proud.) I only did one leg, pinned into the concrete floor, so my father-in-law could get around it easier in his wheelchair. He can pull up to it from any direction, and loves to use it for food prep, it’s just the right height.

Congrats on the table, and smart design for wheelchair access. I know from working with special needs, sometimes even the smallest design details turn a table from unusable to extremely functional for that person.

-- make it safe & keep the rubber side down.

Thanks for the nice feedback, all! Really labored on this one. (Though I do think that that last one was a little biased!)
