I smile whenever think about inadvertently hogging the table, at workshops I used to take.
There would always be 2 people assigned to each long table. Gradually 'my space' would slowly take over most of the table, crowding out the person at the other end.
There never seems to be enough table top space here. I have a couple projects going at once right now and need more places to put things. Chairs. game table & even a garbage can are making it work but I'm still looking forward to that IKEA run!
