This pedestal dining table is my own design. The round top serves beautifully for everyday use, but can expand to accomodate a couple of guests. The mechanism works smoothly, with one person handling it. The extra leaf stores easily in a closet or behind a door.
The pictured table is in curly cherry. The piece can also be made in plain cherry, maple or walnut. Other woods possible. Size is 48" diameter ( expanding to 48 x 72) x 30" high. Priced at $3,800. (Figured woods somewhat more.)
I've made only one of this design, and by all reports it has worked, and looks, beautifully. I would love to do another!
