Still trying to understand the value of the last thing, the garage door that rolls to the sides. That’s one way to make sure you never can put anything on your garage walls. Weird.

Table looks crazy. Giant net swing thing look really cool. Though seems like someone could fall pretty easily.

The only thing I can think of is that there’s not much ceiling clearance. In China, in the large apartment buildings, the first floor is small garages that are sold separate and some people live in them but they’re not very tall so an overhead door wouldn’t work. I believe that most are roll up types.

Only thing I can think of anyways…

This clever table was made for a yacht where space is at a premium. And so is everything else. If you can afford the boat, you can afford the table, which I think cost the owner $50,000 or so.

Even considering the resolution of the video those seams are virtually invisible. Can that be done with hand/power tools or is that cut with a huge CNC? Just amazing precision.

I would guess the garage door rolling to the side thing is a throwback to a time when overhead doors were less popular. Carriage houses, stables, gates, etc. My house was built in 1940. The garage door is now the standard overhead type, but you can see the remnants of the old track that rolls to the side.

Buy a normal table, save $49,000, buy a bigger yacht. ¯\(ツ)

+1 to the horizontal sliding garage door. The carriage house comment by Walker makes sense to me.

Scott Rumschlag has plans for an expanding table on his site at http://mechanicallumber.com. Pretty neat.
