This 3 ft. by 8 ft. banquet table was built for Falstaff.
This is the main research from which I built the banquet table. The designer did not want the center two legs, however.
To cut the detail, I built a router jig which lock the board at a set interval, allowing me to plunge-route the cove.
Shown here is the table frame, before the lid was attached.
As I completed the table, I discovered that having the legs this far apart allowed the lid a noticeable deflection, so I had to add additional support underneath.
