This is a quartersawn white oak extension table. When closed, it measures 6’ 4 1/4”. When open, it measures 19’ 4 1/4”. I have thirteen one foot leaves. The center support is actually two, but when closed, appears to be one, so it actually has four sets of legs. The finish is yellow dye with a mocha stain and catylized varnish(20 sheen). Overall size of the table is 44”x76”.

How big of a room do you have that in? I think you may have a record there for the longest extension table ever.

I kind of did the math, and if you pack the underside of the bottom with slides, and put the legs at the corners, which is common, then the length would be about 80 feet. This I do not recommend. If you figure two feet per person and two at each end, then the table is capable of seating 22 people.

Holy smokes dude! That’s freakin’ awesome! I don’t even know how to build a table that expands! How’d you learn that? A book? A friend? I’d love to make one of these. My family is HUUUUUGE!!!

I love QSWO, and your table makes fine use of it! I also like the curved legs—a nice detail.

I’ll bet you’ll enjoy family holiday gatherings around it for years to come!
