All sitting comfortably?

Folding kitchen table and stools

A recent commission for Dougal Black Carpentry was this compact kitchen table and stools.  It had to fit into a small kitchen without getting in the way but also had to be able to seat four people if necessary...

"This commission has been great fun to design and make." says Dougal, "It was a team effort, too.  My customers had made a cardboard mock-up to see what would fit, and that was the start of the design process!"  

The result is this folding-leaf design which allows two people to use the table on a daily basis, but with one easy action it converts to a decent four-place dining table.  By positioning the legs on the sides rather than at the corners, and opting for sturdy stools rather than chairs, everything tucks away nicely until it is needed.

"I love my job", says Dougal, "loads of satisfaction and never two days the same!"

Dear Dougal, we arrived home last night to be greeted by a magnificent new addition to our home. Thank you so much... we are both absolutely delighted - not only with the finished article, but by the considerate and tidy way which you have executed it. It is absolutely beautiful and even more than we expected has fulfilled our aspirations completely!
