The Most Incredible Table You’ll Ever See
Yup, my headline makes one heck of a bold claim. That said, from an engineering standpoint (at least), this capstan table crafted by David Fletcher is an utter marvel of engineering.

In this short video outlining the table’s general construction and history, Fletcher claims that when asked to produce the table he replied that it was “far too difficult.” In the end however, he was convinced to attempt the build, and judging by the final product, he most likely exceeded his wildest expectations.Want one of your own? No problem. For a cool $50K-$70K, you can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner at this fine specimen of a table.
So the next time you find yourself frustrated while trying to cut a complex compound-angled dovetail joint-think of Mr. Fletcher and put your “big boy pants” on.
