Our dining table is currently an 8-10 seater, an antique I restored at17. (Due for another restoration) Once Bass is seated at the table we will have seriously outgrown the table.

Talking furniture, I am seeking a cube bookcase, to house our picture books. Most likely another piece of furniture we may have to make, particularly as I want solid timber.
