I mentioned mahogany wake tables in A Wake back in January this year: At approximately twelve feet long and six feet wide, when open, could the massive wake table below have been commissioned for seeing off one of Ireland’s renowned giants?

The table is currently being offered for £230,000 (AU$388,134) by Windsor House Antiques.
