I had been storing a pile of teak, afromosia and various tropical hardwoods, all culled from Exeter University, during rebuilds of their laboratories.
So, on moving some down to Karen's rather than more storing I decided to make a table out of some teak which came from the Geology Dept.
Decided to make an extending table as we dont have a big house and it was more economical in wood.
The extending mechanism I found on the web at http://www.bkservicesonline.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=60_61
They do all the bits to make an extending table.
