I’m hoping to build the expandable dining table featured in Fine Woodworking #165 and shown at:

I have the magazine article, and I have also seen the project in their “Furniture” book, and they are only three pages long, not a typical full construction article or plan. Before starting on this I would rather have more detailed information if possible. If I can’t, I’ll probably tackle it anyway, but more info would be better.

Has anyone here seen a more complete plan for a table with this mechanism? Alternatively, has anyone built this table from the basic FWW article? Thanks.

(I actually looked up the author/designer William Krase and found that he died about ten years ago, so I wasn’t able to ask him any questions about it.)
