Disclaimer: I'm a complete newbie.
A problem with dining tables is catering for a varied number of people. Two solutions to this is folding sides or break apart system where one adds the extra table parts.
What about simply building multiple tables and putting them together?
Say I make a table that caters for 6 people, make another that fits 4 around, put that on and the whole table should fit another 2 poeple around it. Add another for another 2.
The problems I see with this is
- Uneven floor surface could spoil a seamless surface, could be solved either with adjustable legs or just pieces of paper
- Slight knocks and movements will put them out of alignment. Could be solved by locking them together somehow.
I'm thinking about this because it makes it easier to build tables that can be packed away. And it seems like the simplest solution.
How may I go about the solutions to the two points? Is it likely they will solve the problems?
