This table is 4’ x 8’ plus has two 2’ esxtensions making it a 4’ x 12’ table. It is made from 1 ash tree that the family had to remove to build their house. We’ve noticed that it is slightly heavy. Merci la famille Juneau et good job Nick and thanks for your help!

I have posted some pictures of how the extensions work. They are basically lift off, if you are stong enough that is.

I find myself wondering how to mount vises on it :)

Pretty table.

Did you put hydraulic pistons with casters in the legs to enable the owner to open the table for the leaves,
or is the owner a descendant of Fabian “Joe” Fournier (Paul Bunyan to US citizens). That is a beautiful
table, thank you for sharing.

Would love to see it in it’s final destination/home… That’s gotta be a pretty big dining room! Nice work and kudos to the movers. I hope it isnt going up any stairs!
