I've seen that table. It's awesome. The potterje has several very nice pieces.On Aug 6, 2012 4:27 PM, "gloerke" <gloerke@...> wrote:
the measurements are metric: cm in the drawing. No medieval thumbs, feet, etc... My apologies for that ;)

This was definitely not a standard medieval trestle table as we would imagine (i.e. easy to set up and transport). The table board is 8.4 metre long and would weigh around 270 kg. The trestles are big as well.
