Topic tags/keywords: question

I am building a breakfast table from reclaimed long leaf pine and my customer wants to be able to slide the table top over the window seat by 12”. This will provide more walkway room by the table. The top is 4×5’ with the 5’ width to match the octagonal shape of the existing window seat. I am thinking I could use one side of table extenders. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Joe, I think that will work, but you need to consider the gravity of the situation if one or more people happen to lean on the cantilevered table top a little too forcefully.

Well said Art! I am concerned about that as well. I actually think I can achieve the same effect by sliding the entire table closer to the window seat! Sometimes simple is best.
