This video is intended as a lightly amusing demonstration of the "Phoebe Table" which I designed and built. I created the animation by photographing the table from above in my shop. The table is composed of up to 24 leaves (plus a round Terminus for open shapes) that can be set on each other within a 30 degree range of arc. The smallest circle is 60" diameter, the largest is 90". It is 18' long and 30" wide as a straight line.
The legs currently can be adjusted to dining table, work table (36") and bar table (40) height. Other heights between those could be added. A couple of things to note that flashed by in the video. The legs can be attached anywhere along the outside arc of each leaf so they can be moved out of the way of (peoples') legs and feet for any particular top arrangement. It is not necessary to have a leg on every leaf. The table can span 4 leaves between legs. It is possible to have more than one leg on a leaf.
The possibilities for elegant use of this table are endless for residential, commercial, or yacht use. It invites creativity in its use. It allows elegant conformation to unusual spaces or shapes and invites the use of different shapes for different events in the same location. Its open geometry invites new kinds of center pieces and serving protocols. The Phoebe Table is the first of its kind and patents are pending.
