I am building a conference table for a client similar to this: http://www.jccypress.com/p/conference-tables_24.html
Generally, these tables are 48 to 50” wide, but the client asked that it be 42” wide. I normally leave about 12 to 15” of knee space from the edge of the table to the table legs. This allows people to sit anywhere around the table without banging their knees against the table legs.
Once I started mocking up the current client’s table (42” wide), I got nervous because even with the table legs 12” from the edge of the table, it looks like the table may be a bit unstable… as in, if someone pushes down on the table top while getting up, the table may tip over toward them.
Does this make sense? Can anyone give me their thoughts?
