Description
The user has two identical tables; one is used as dining table and the other a work table. The legs are longer than standard to allow room for the user’s knees. The tables have storage drawers.

Users comments
The user liked this table with storage drawers for cutlery, etc. Since his knees do not fit under standard tables he custom-ordered longer table legs.

The advantage of two identical tables is that you can make one long table when guests visit. This works well for the user, who can not handle table extensions.
