« Part 4: Change of Plans? Part 5 of Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set series Part 6: The Hard Part »

Just a short update. While surfing plans, as I am wont to do, I stumbled across these trestle table plans. I didn’t give much thought to it, as it’s a bit too modern for me, but when I looked at the detailed preview, I saw something quite interesting. The plans include a leaf extension system that will work perfectly with my oversized breadboard ends. This means that I can make a table that seats six and with just a bit more work, seat eight.

If you made swing-out legs, you could even make the extensions long enough that it’d go from seating 6 to seating 10. That is a neat design, and simpler (and more structurally sound), I think, than having the table split in the middle.

I’ll let you learn first, because that’s what I wish to do down the road as well.
