In the recent Williamsburg Conference - Working Wood in the 18th Century - Mack Headley gave an interesting talk on various furniture examples from Monticello. One motivation for modeling this table was to find out how the Flaps slide out and increase the table's size.
Here is a close up of the inside of the table frame (with the Top and Flaps hidden) showing the grooved  glide bars and sliders which provide for Flap extraction. I continue to study this table and the Sheraton design as I'm not confident about the slider mechanism and Top bolting scheme. I am currently creating a (second) bed for my son and I am struggling on this particular point.

These compact, lightweight Fence Clamps allow you to secure a huge variety of shop-made auxiliary fences to your existing fences without having the clamp interfere with your work. One of the pieces he described and showed in pictures was Thomas Jefferson's Universal Table.
The Sheraton drawing provides a scale, so I was able to use this to make the scanned image full size. It was not so easy to "see" the details of construction in Sheraton's drawing, but I was hopeful that SketchUp could help uncover the complexities. This allows the Top to be loosened and raised to provide clearance for the extraction of the Flaps. Also, I plan to experiment with SketchUp's ability to show an animation of the Flap extraction. As I understand the Frid article, there seems to be sliders but not guide bars as shown in Sheraton. I maintain anesthesia and respiratory equipment for the largest medical facility in southeast Minnesota. As mentioned in my previous blog post, Thomas Jefferson seemed to favor furniture that was dynamically complex, such as unfolding, sliding, ratcheting, rotating, hinged, etc.


Dave Richards has a blog entry on making threads (I believe this was associated with a workbench and its vice screws. That means no more clunky wood screws and C-clamps and no need to screw into your expensive fence!
