another round one

here we go again ... time to think up a name for this design ... i think this is the fourth or fifth
version of this design we have done .. in the early stages above, it's a 48" round and will have two 24" leaves.  the halves of the base will move as the top expands ..
the revised cad drawing below
the first one, in the picture at the top, was a 60" round with three 18" leaves
you can see more versions of it in this slide show
light stain, dark stain, black, natural .. lots of choices ...
trevor, in the earlier stages, working on the base part joinery
gluing up the aprons here, which he angle cuts on the cnc after they set up ..
ready for aprons on the leaves and the angled apron cuts ..
ok .. the aprons are angled and the bottom edge of the top is beveled ..
a little sanding and scraping and we're ready for finish  ..
all done now ..
with the leaves .. alternate base designs below

This looks like a very nice table! I think it is a really interesting idea to have the leaves raise in the middle, as most tables I have seen simply have leaves that flip up on the ends. It would be interesting to see more about how you have set that up to work. I find the support design very appealing. It is simple, but the curves work very well to give it a nice appearance.
