I’m a wife, a mom, and a self-taught carpenter and DIYer. If something needs done, I’ll give it a go! I like to encourage people to be fearless and learn new things. I also try to inspire people to help others with their own talents and skill sets.

Hey guys, I’m trying to make a hinged drop leaf table but I’m not sure how to connect the pieces. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you for your help, anything would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I just clicked on your profile from the Knife Swap thread. The question about the drop leaf table is a good one and while I don’t have any experience, I’m sure a lot of other LJs do. You won’t get much traffic on your profile though… If you post your question over in the forums, I’m sure you’ll get plenty of response though.

I know I’m a little late but, welcome to the site! You’re YouTube channel and the audience you’re aiming at is great! I’ll watch some videos when I have time :-)

Ditto from the knife swap, and welcome.
Re: drop leaf hinges, I think something like this attached to the underside of the table would work:
Although these might be too small, the idea would be the same.

Thank you guys, I’m getting the hang of the forms better now and how to get responses with my questions…I have many! I am so grateful to be apart of a skilled group of craftsmen. I’ll let you know how the drop leaf turns out. Going to work on it now before I need to go pick up my son!
