Here is my mission style extension dining table. It expands with two 12” leaves to seat 10 people. The leaves feature hinged aprons, and store inside the table. The aprons fold on continuous hinges that lock at 90 degrees, and are held in place with rare earth magnets. The fixed portion of the apron is dovetailed, and the small dividers between sections feature double walnut pegs to echo the details found on the chairs. Ten walnut butterfly inlays adorn the top.
The equilizer style extension is 52”, and expands another 50”, and available through

Wonderful job! The fleck is gorgeous and used to it’s best impact, the dovetails and the extensions are so well executed and stored. Awesome execution. Thanks you for sharing this exceptional project.

The design is my own. I have uploaded scaled plans to Google Sketchup. There you will find all the dimensions needed to build the table.

That is the best table design I have seen. Nicely done. I don’t suppose you can post a link to the Sketchup info?

The finish is Rodda #19 oil based stain, which is a very thick bodied stain. It has the advantage of hiding sapwood very well. Topcoat is Valspar pre-cat lacquer in the #60 sheen (satin).

Rich K ,
If you go to Google Sketchup and type “Willie Sandry Designs” it is the first plan to display.
