Hello,

I am looking at making a semi circular table which I have started cutting out the semi circles however I am trying to work out if my idea will work. I am using 27mm thick pine and the semi circles will be 280mm radius. I am thinking of putting a 22mm thick piece of pine (or maybe two) which is around 300mm wide using a mortise and tennon joint towards the back so the top (which will have some circles grooved out for some cups etc) will be on there. so effectively its sitting on a semi circle and also the weight is on the hanging part of the top. And example of what I am trying is attached (just pretend the ovals are semi circles).

Also I am going to finish with some Danish oil to give it some protection and also a bit of color.

Would this work or would it just simply not take the weight? If not could anyone point me in the direction I would need to go?

Thanks

James
