Extending Oxbow Table

I have just completed a very special commission for a client here in Scotland. I was asked to design a table that could extend to sit ten for family gatherings and to compliment my Oxbow chairs. The requirements for the extension method were for the leaves to be integral to the framework. The result was the application of simultaneous running gear attached to the table surfaces with offset pivot hinges on the leaves to create a butterfly extension, allowing the operation to be carried out effortlessly by one person.

Thanks to Stuart McClay for the amazing images.
