Designing a Custom Dining Table with an Elliptical Top

Prospective patrons wanted an elliptical tabletop on a pedestal to seat six.  It took several exchanges of drawings and comments to find the size.  A mathematically true ellipse is a very pleasing shape, but the useable space on and under is less than the length and width at first seem to provide.

The first size we investigated was 48”x60”.

48”x60” seemed too small for six chairs and diners.  We increased the dimensions as much as we could given the space in the room, and after perusing the drawings below, went with 50”x68.”
