Possible to trim a table leaf?
I'm considering purchasing a dining table on craigslist. It has a leaf, which would make it too long for my space. I was wondering whether it might be possible to trim the width of the leaf. It would seem that you could drill the existing holes on the side of the leaf deeper before you made the cut, so it would line up correctly. I would need to trim about 10", but that seems like it would be easier than just a couple of inches.
The table is skirted below the top, so that would complicate things. I haven't seen it in person yet, but it may be veneer.
I'm having trouble finding the right sized table. Is this a really stupid idea?
