    Interesting, how are you planning on attaching the extensions. You will be dealing with issues with the end grain if you try to attach them to the ends.

    Don, the extensions are gonna be made out of 2 2x8's, with 2 2x2's underneath that will slide into holes I'm going to cut in the end apron.

    Thanks Don! Wish I could say I thought of it myself, but that's how the plans were :-)

    I've been a little busy lately, but I finally have the table ready to finish! I've learned a lot so far and have definitely figured out a few things I would do different if I were to make another one. So far it's been a ton of fun though!!

    When I stop feeling that way after a build is when I'll start getting bored ;-)

    I'll echo what Glenn said. I'm nowhere near his skill level but I learn something new and try something new on every build I make. It keeps it fun.

    Looking forward to the pictures
    So mote it be,

    That's part of what I love about woodworking, figuring out different or better ways to make things. Whether it is something I made or something I see, and think "I could do that, but a little different"!

    Here's a couple of pics.

    This one shows the base with the notches cut out for the extensions to slide into.
