The Richmond round oak extending table has a diameter of 1100 mm and one centre butterfly leaf extension of 400 mm stored within the table. The table can be extended to 1500 mm long, making an oval.
This Richmond round oak extending table seats four people without extensions. If you use the extension you gain two extra place settings making it a six seater with more space for serving dishes.
It has a chunky top with a square edge but the top is softened and a lovely square leg with the corners softened. The Richmond round oak extending table is protected by a matt lacquer finish which enhances the grain.
Extending table mechanism
The legs are each fastened by two strong bolts to make a rigid structure. The main top and extension leaf has male and female locating pins to align the table sections. When fitted, the extension also has a spring loaded latch to hold each section together, just in case someone pulls on the end of the table and a wine glass disappears down through the gap.
When moving the table, it needs to be picked up from underneath the side rails to avoid putting unnecessary strain on the sliding mechanism by lifting on the top. Dragging tables is risky as catching a leg on carpet or the edge of a tile can damage the table and the leg at the fixing point.
This round oak extending table is part of the Richmond Oak Collection
The Richmond Oak Collection has a chunky top with a softened square edge. With lovely square legs, it is protected by a matt lacquer finish which enhances the grain and lustre. The contemporary tarnished metal twin fixing handles set it apart from more traditional oak furniture. The top and legs give this collection a softer modern look, while its lovely light oak colour looks great in any home. The field and panel tops and sides, internally tapered legs and front frames (apart from the dining tables) and dove tailed drawer boxes are added features of the Richmond Oak range. The lacquer on the Richmond Oak range makes it moisture resistant and maintenance free, requiring only dusting if you please or a wipe with a damp cloth to remove any sticky marks.
