This is a set of circular occasional tables that has leaves that collapse down leaving the centre piece that has routed lips which slide locate into runners under the main table top. It is a compact design and very user friendly. The legs are simple square frames with one that swivels to allow the leaves to fold down. I used piano hinges but ordinary brass hinges will do. Mine is simple stained and varnished pine with all the legs tapered to give more appeal.
Concept is good but the quality is poor due to completion prior to final staining and finishing. Making another set by making all the parts and finishing them before assembly.

I want a set of these for myself! Wondeful design and I like the leg mechanics a lot with the wedge to stop the rotation.
