Normally the seats and table top are the same length and extend beyond the legs/top support.. How about shortening the seats and lengthening the table top- on all four corners. A wheel bound person could sit nicely at these spaces.

How about alternating every other seat with an empty space- between the seat supports.

you can make a four legged table wher you fold out the octagon from the
mittle of the top plate
and let the four legs either bee foldeble or you can screw the legs on
by turning them

it´s an old classic design
