    OMG, that is gorgeous! Where do I get the plans?

    EDIT: Oh, and amazing doesn't really cut it. Awesome, innovative, inspiring, mesmerizing, all of these and then some are needed and that still doesn't do the table justice.

    My BIL sells that table (or one just like it) in his furnishing and design store...it retails for $25,000 Very cool, but not sure I would pay that much for a table if I had A-Rod's money.

    a 4x8 over the table would have been cheaper.

    I cannot remember who, OR which Forum it was on, but I remember about two years ago there was a fellow either making that table (or one like it) for a client and it took several tries and a lot of tweaking to get it designed, finished and make it work. He had quite a few pics of his progress on the thread and it was really interesting. Quite a different twist on a table with just adding leaves.

    Yeah, I recall seeing this table (or one like it) on a forum (likely SMC) a couple years ago. Very amazing work indeed. Somebody had WAY too much geometry in high school.

    I saw a table like that (pictures only) on a yacht, not far from the helicopter landing pad. A very big yacht.

    I spent a little time looking for plans or mechanism kit, but struck out.

    $25K to ARod is like what...$175 to a fella making $100k a year?

    It was an amazing table last year when it circulated throughout the WWing forums, and still is... Although most of us don't have a room large enough to house the structure or the cash enough to purchase. I do admire the design and the thought that went into making such and how the mechanism works. Far beyond my mental capacity.
