images form the 90's

I have been going through some of my photos from previous projects and found this one from the 1990's and is my version of the "Capstan" table. The table had concentric rings underneath and as the outer ring was turned it  pushed the quadrant leaves out. The leg box housed the other leaves and they popped up and were secured by turning the ring back on itself.  It was one of the most complicated things we have made but it did work.


From a six seater it expanded to form a ten seater.  The most difficult part was the spring loading of the leaves in the box housing. The whole thing was in Oak so we had a lot of weight to deal with.
