In the answer to an earlier question Stephen showed that s = 0.4142 w where s and w are given in the diagram on the right above. I agree with your calculation, if s = 23 inches then w = 23 ÷ 0.4142 = 55.5 inches. I'm not sure how you are going to construct the table so I don't know which angles you need. The exterior turning angles are 45^{o} as in the diagram. Some other angles are given in the answer to an earlier question. Let us know if there is still something you need. Penny and Stephen
