    Hi / Low, coffee /dining table

    Almost finished building a new hi/lo table with pull up leaves to expand the table when up for eating. The top slides diagonally to be closer to the sofa...

    The top and vertical pieces are Utile (a hard wood which I can find locally on 18 boards), the base insets are half inch mahogany plywood. Will post more after finished in Awlwood

    Low position

    Locking in up position is pretty basic... two plywood supports on hinges with a piece of line to bring them up. Not fancy but it works....

    Looks great! Any chance you could post higher res pix/close-ups? I'm intrigued with the hi-low table concept but have never seen one in person. Some clues would be mucho appreciated.

    Pascal, NICE work! I'm a builder but also am on a HGTV show (flea Market Flip) where I help contestants make things out of flea market finds. Half of the time, we make almost everything out of new wood and I also do most of the metal fabrication/welding. I have a complete workshop in my
    barn full of black walnut that I've been making coffee tables, dining tables etc but your table just inspired me to get busy making a new table for my 50c. Again, nice work! It's beautiful!

    have your launch party....lol.

    I will. It s very basic. I considered using a linear lift (they re cheap) but decided to stick to the KIDS method
