Andrea's Gateleg Demilunes

Honduras mahogany, purpleheart; 42" l x 21" w x 29 1/2" h (folded); 42" round x 29 1/2" h (unfolded)

Andrea–for whom I'd built a dining table and set of chairs twenty-five years before–needed more dining space for holidays and other occasional large soirees. She envisioned two demilunes that sat against the wall and functioned as servers in quiet times, then were unfolded into round tables when the masses descended. I used the same mahogany and purpleheart combination, and other design cues, as I had in her original dining room set.
