|The New Yankee Workshop Online: The Dining Table|
Norm visits an antique dealer (Tonkin of Nantucket)
who commissions reproduction English antique furniture for his shop on Nantucket, Massachusetts. At the shop Norm finds an extension table, which should be perfect for "dinner for 10 or more" and yet collapses down to 6 feet for non-feast days. Norm makes his own out of mahogany with an elegant two-leaved top that sits on a pair of Queen Anne period pedestals giving diners ample legroom under the table.
