I built this a little while back. It is made from black Walnut, Aformosia and Maple. I used the entire project as an exercise in hand tool work. other than turning the legs on the lathe , the entire table was made with hand tools. It was also a first for me in hand made wooden hinges for the drop down wing supports.

Thank you Lalloos.

Over the years I have been moving more and more towards hand tool woodwopking. I even sold my table saw last month, because I was simply not using it enough to justify its footprint in my shop. My band saw does most of the grunt work now.
