the table is oak with a trestle base. It is 6’6” long by 51” wide and can open up to9’6” long with three
1’ leaves. The table replaces one from an original set of furniture from my family’s home. The old table was
cut up to make benches.

Truly beautiful. It has a very gothic look about it.

Very interesting details on those benches. How did you do the leaves (what’s the mechanics?)?

thanks for the comments, the mechanical parts for the leaves came from Rockler, the equalizer slides
work pretty well.
