Willie Sandry Designs. This is my version of an arts and crafts extension table. It extends to 103" long, which is ample room to seat 10. The material is quartersawn white oak, with walnut accents. Ten butterfly inlays adorn the top. The apron features dovetailed corners, and the table segments are separated by domino shaped keys which feature double walnut pegs. The double peg motif is also echoed in the chairs. The aprons are hinged on the leaves, to allow for storage under the table top.

It was one of the few sources for slides that open wide enough to accomodate the leaves for storage.
They are equalizer slides, so one person can remove/install the leaves. Pulling on one end of the table causes both sides to expand.

great table, very good work.
What I would like to know, how does the extension mechanism function? I see in one picture some sort of a pinion and a toothed wheel.

Best regards from Germany Michael
