Pedestal tables are in such demand because of the flexibility that they provide for seating. There is no need to work seating around the table legs on the corners. The Alexandria pedestal table is a robust dining table with 2 large carved pedestals made of solid Canadian birch. The default top is made of solid pine, which is HAND-PLANED to give it a rustic charm that will endure through the trials of family use. It is available either 80 or 96 long and comes with two 16 wide company boards, one for each end of the table. For the 80" table, the pedestals are 10" wide. The 80" table has 38" of clearance between the two pedestals, so 2 of the chairs on the side will have to straddle a leg. For the 96" table, the pedestals are 10" wide. The 96" table has 54" of clearance between the legs.
