Pencil Leg Dining Table: an extension table pictured with one of its two 22″ leaves inserted, this 72″ x 48″ dining table opens to 116″ when fully extended. The tapered octagonal (pencil) legs were inspired by traditional pencil post bed designs; see the link below. I have made numerous sizes of the pencil leg table and also desks in this style. Depending on the wood and finish this style fits nicely in both traditional and contemporary settings. Go to the following links to see other pencil leg tables pictured on this website.
