    well... totally ridiculous and insanely ambitious... this engineers dream table; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQ_AwFSWIPU here's a little more explanation Of course this is way above my head and just too hard to reproduce in 1:12. There are a few mechanisms though, that come close to the same circular expanding feature, but those don't stow the leaves that increase the size of the top. And that's what actually makes it so attractive to me. And is so useful in miniature too. That way you can 'play' with it without having a bunch of loose table tops you need to put in. A feature that made me make this table But a circular one is definitely on my to-dream-do-list

    Tamra, on my latch I glued nails into the holes and filed them flush with the latch's bottom surface and then just glued it to the table top. My table top was too thin to drill holes into it. If you are going to put petitpoint on top I would rivet the latch as nobody would see it once the petitpoint is inserted.

    From the album: Metalwork

    Brass beds in child and adult sizes. As I recall there about 175 pieces in the adult size.

    Yes there is a little mortise and tenon in the center of the back edge. On this type of hinge there is a little sweet spot where it works perfectly but it is hard to find without binding. So what I did was make the holes in the middle floating hinge plate a little bit elongated this way it would open and the back edges of the table would clear each other and then it could be pushed it on the mortise.
