1st Johnson Furniture's - Expanding Circular Dining Table

Johnson Furniture's expanding dining table was a firm favourite during the exhibition again this year. A new design, size and timber choice but the same fascinating mechanism as last year.  Seeing the reactions of visitors, as they watched in wonder as George Johnson demonstrate the ease of use of this beautiful table was continually uplifting throughout the duration of the exhibition.

We featured this pieces just before the exhibition, if you would like to learn more about this piece, the special 800 year old tree that made it possible or see a video of the table being demonstrated, then please read this article

2016 Visitor Prize Draw

1st Johnson Furniture's - Expanding Circular Dining Table

This was certainly the star of the exhibition this year and we asked the maker George Johnson for a little more information about the piece:

"This latest version of my expanding circular dining has a top veneered in masur birch.  This is a Scandinavian timber where the bark is ingrowing in the trunk which produces beautiful burr like effects.  The top was created with 12 pieces of masur birch arranged in a book matched star-burst pattern.  The base and detail on the top are made from wenge which is an African hardwood.  The legs have an internal metal structure which allows them to be slim and elegant but still be rigid enough to produce a solid table.  The expansion mechanism was custom made using laser cut steel and also featured some 3D printed parts, meaning it is super accurate, and after being opened and closed several hundred times at the show, reliable!"

A video of the table can be viewed here.
