Here is one version with removable leafs.
Looks crazy expensive to make:

OK, that is one cool table, I wonder what it cost to make not alone what it goes for.

Sawblade, the dbfletcher site is the ones that hold the copyrights and the patents on this design. The Table in the video sells for 32,000 pounds! That’s about $50,100.00 US. It would probably take a year to make the thing, less the materials, you’d make about $3.00 an hour that year. =) Even WITH a CNC router.

Looking at the movement of the segments and the person’s action to cause the movement, it must, at least partly, work like a 3-jaw lathe chuck. the pie shaped segments must have pins extending down into a disk with a spiral cam groove(s) in it. that could account for the in and out movement of the segments. I suppose the parts that lift up from below must ride some sort of cam as well, but that’s a good trick to make it all work so smoothly and sync up without gaps. Impressive if it was metal, un-imaginable how to do this with wood.

That’s a super cool story. I’ve just heard that the company making those tables keeps a close eye on the plans and nobody else has them. I thought the Jupes table had leafs the slid down inside the center of the table while it was in the open position:

Or had loose leafs that you had to place when the table was open:

I really like the first design that has the leafs that drop in the middle. I’d build one of those if you can find the plans.

Here is another very cool manual design that would probably be more up everyone’s ally.

Maybe we should have a Lumberjocks challenge to build and post a small version of this style of table.
I would be interested in something like that.

Thanks Al, believe me, I’m not giving this up. I want to build one, even if it’s a small one.
I think I’m going to go after the folding leafs, or the ones that flip and store in the middle.
The one with the rising star looks like a little too much to handle.

I went back to my blog entry in 2007 which has a couple of Jupe table resources to find Fauber's revolving extension table in 1886 and a 2003 patent which, at the time I read both of them, I chalked up to “new materials, old design”.

I am wanting to try the one that the leaves fold into the middle. It will be a good goal for the next year.
