"I have a project that you don't want," the lady said. "I live in a Craftsman-style house and I want a big dining table that will somehow shrink so that I can use it as a sofa table when I don't need it for dining. I don't like the look of drop leaf tables and I don't want the hassle of an expansion table with leaves." Bringing the idea to fruition was an arduous task. The challenge was to end up with two good looking tables in one. The table is shown in the closed "sofa table" position.

My new table

I found this drop leaf in a second hand store in our town. I am totally addicted to drop leaf tables, I think they are the greatest. So anyway I gathered up some stuff I needed to get rid of here and traded it in on the table and then only had to pay 23.00 for it. I sanded and repainted the top, left the bottom as is. I then added two copper bars to put S hooks and cup hooks for hanging pots. When I need more room I just put up the ends. It is a great height for my three smaller helpers.
