I call this an Open Book table because the way the table expands to seat more people is that the top pivots 90 degrees and the top piece of the table top flips open like a book. I took the design from Ernest Joyce’s Encyclopedia of Furniture Making. Another victim of the fire. It had a maple top with cherry legs.
Due to some recent requests, here’s the drawing that I used to make this table from. The pivot is located on a line 45 degrees off the center, half way between the center of the table and the edge of the top when it’s closed. I hope this helps with the head scratching going on.
