This extending dining table was one of the toughest woodworking projects I've ever taken on. I partnered with Nikon to make this video on the Nikon Z 6II which, as you can see, seriously upped my video quality. In the end, I made an extendable walnut dining table that goes from 108" (275cm) to 140" (355cm) with two continuous grain (mostly) leaf extensions to make it a totally functional expanding table. When not in use there is no visible hardware, screws, or brackets that get in the way of daily use. The wood I used is locally salvaged black walnut. I used two sequential slabs, also referred to as a bookmatch. Bookmatched tables form a symmetrical, mirror image of each other and are my favorite style of table. You could take everything applied to this table and use it with your own DIY live edge table project. Whether it was a bookmatched live edge table or a single slab natural edge table, this continuous grain leaf extension would work. #Sponsored Want to build your own epoxy table?
