How would you say, "the big table is not enough"?

'Chan eil gu leòr anns a' bhòrd mhòr'? I feel like it's tough to translate a sentence that you wouldn't use in English naturally. You definitely couldn't use 'Chan eil am bòrd mòr gu leòr' for that though.

I was thinking the same thing. As in the big table is insufficient.
