In Response To: making table leaves (Joel Peters)

The easiest way for you to make the leaves would be to buy 3/4" mahogany plywood and edge it with a solid strip of semilar wood, and create the apron from the same plywood, and some glue blocks behind. If you have the tools and fortitude you may glue up a poplar substrate and veneer it to a 3/4" finish thickness, but unless you plan to use the leaves a lot or are a pureist this may be over kill. The term breadboard refers to the typical breadboard pull-out design used in kitchens, employing a wider solid edge joined to the cutting surface with a spline or semilar glue joint. This method would allow you to shape or route a matching profile onto the leaf as may exist on the table.
