    3 tear table

    The original table was 3" narrower in the front and sides. Plus only 3 supports and 3 bun feet. I added 4 more supports and bun feet. Original tops were paper board with veneer so I used double sided cherry 3/4" ply, and finished. I took a small side table apart to get the extra supports and feet. So I guess one can say I do some construction flat work.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Looks good Dave.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    This is what it is used for Rob. We delivered the table this morning to a very good customer we have been doing work for the past 3 years. Everything in her home has gone through this shop. I told her this morning I need to get in there and get pictures. This is the lady we or Jarrod did the piano for 2 years ago. So I like keeping her very happy. Very nice couch table. Once your seated with a slight touch to the bottom of the top table and it smoothly moves into the upward position. We needed to add extra weight to the bottom of the top so it would just smoothly drop down or slide up. I like this and am thinking I will be making more of them for customers in the future.

    Dave,
    Where'd you get the lift mechanism? The ones I've seen were flimsier than I wanted to use.

    The original table was from Lazy Boy, so the customer basically paid for the lift because the table they sell is very cheep. If you find a good mechanism let me know.
    I found this and Rockler has them http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?p...20for%20tables
