This is a table that my wife designed. It would have been fairly simple to make except for making it expandable and having a storage area for the extra leaf. She did a lot of designing to get it to clear the pulled out leg for removal and return. I wound up needing to rebuild the pullout and the hidden supports to get it to slide relatively easy. Not very smooth, but won’t be opened that often. Got the idea of having the division on the end of the table rather than the middle of a furniture store. Which I tried to hide the gap with the design that was added to the ends. The design was redone once as the first one didn’t work out very well visually.

The (maple?) pattern on the end looks great with the walnut grain running across the width of the top.
