    You are on a roll Dan. Very nice, understated design. I really like this.

    Looks fine from here.
    What is your drop mechanism?
    Personally, I dislike mechanical as they always sag. Usually sooner than later. I prefer the simplicity of old fashioned sliding wood supports.

    I will second Franks concern about the sagging. But I wouldn't change a thing on the rest. It's near perfect.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Those are through tenons all around. The only metal in the whole table would be the hinges. I would be using sliding wooden supports, but as this was preliminary, i didn't include them. You're right, cherry, or white oak and this would be a nice table. The only thing holding it up, is that he is waiting on permission from the wife...

    Nice table Dan.

    I just noticed you're in Falcon Heights. I lived there when I first moved to the Cities from Wisconsin. Right across from the Fairgrounds and near that odd drainage pond inside the chain link fence.
