I can't think of any pieces of furniture designed to withstand a blow from a 12 X 12 inch oak beam swinging downward from 30 feet above...maybe some Stickley items.
Restoring an 1870’s Walnut Centre Table Part 1: The Top
This walnut table was shattered by a powerful downward force. The client asked to have it put back into good order.
A Demi-Lune Table ca. 1810
This table was brought to my shop for repair. The condition was just what you might expect from a table of this type and age; loose leg joints and hinge joint damage on the folding top. It had a number of secondary issues as well, loosened and cracked veneer, a damaged finish with numerous dents and missing sections of cross-grain banding. It was barely standing upright.
