    Finally finished the table I promised my wife.

    And got around to taking pics. Wore out my mortise chisels, had to re-sharpen once and need to again. A ton of M&Ts and through M&Ts. Minimal use of fasteners to just hardware and alignment pieces.

    Beautiful piece!

    Give us some more details, wood, finish, etc.
    I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Can you share a little WIP of the expansion slider mechanisms? They don't look conventional (pics 3 & 4) so ??????

    Re: Finally finished the table I promised my wife.

    Very, very nice, Zach. I'm also interested in the wood. It kinda looks like Gum. Lots of nice grain and character.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    Once again, great craftsmanship Zach! I think your score went way up with your wife!

    Very nice. Is that a wormy maple table on a maple floor - really fits in nicely even if not. You done good.

    Re: Finally finished the table I promised my wife.

    Nice, I'm also interested in the slide mechanisms and how the leafs are hidden under the table top.

    I'm slowly working on a draw leaf table for my sister, so your post is timely and may assist me in my quest.

    Wood is 8/4 Ambrosia Maple from Wall Lumber. Finish is Rock Hard Table Top Varnish. Used Behlens Grain Filler before finishing. I can give my schedule if interested.

    I came up with the slider mechanism. It's basically through mortise runners that alternate on each side of the outer leafs. I pinned a support on the ends to the sliders with dowels no glue. I screwed the cross support on the end so it can be taken apart. The middle of the base is through mortises which retain the sliders and provide support for the slider, they are dadoed to the side support rails. The leafs have guides I made that keep alignment when sliding. The middle leaf has similar alignment wood pieces that fit in the middle section and keep everything aligned in the middle. I am not 100% satisfied on the mechanism yet. I am working on improving the design for the next project. I can take pictures of items to help explain if you want.

    The leaves don't hide when retracted, are you referring to the sliders?
