Odd looking table. Looks like the makings for some mediaeval torture device.

...or a specialised picnic table for a very overweight person or a very pregnant tall lady, perhaps?

A matching shaped tablecloth would be a useful accessory, and variants could be useful for hospital patients, or even those (like me), who like to work sometimes with feet up in bed.

Gentlemen,

You are on the right track. It's a mobile time machine for grumpy fat bellied old men from the high medieval ages

Soon they'll be gone, leaving a black hole in our hearts. Nice piece of carpentry, ain't it

Sincerely

Yours for ever

Trumpy

if i'm not mistaken, it looks as though the top is hinged in the middle, to fold up away from the bench allowing a person to sit. once seated, the top folds back down and provides arm rests as well as a table surface... obviously, as close as the edge would be to the bench without the cutout, no one could sit there otherwise...

I applied some hard dodging to the part you ment, I think. So there is no reason to believe that you can't stop excercising this kind of photography once you've let yourself get caught

There arre millions of other reasons of course

If one got a goat up on the table and placed a bucket on the bench one will not have to bend to milk the goat? well worth the shot better yet the pail goes on the bench and the chickens head is placed over the bench and whack the axe cuts the head off and viola the wife that had to do all this don't have to pick up all those chicken heads.. we all have to do what we have to do...and if it means eating oh well ...do it or go hungry...
