My high school English teacher failed to teach me sufficient adjectives to describe this miracle of engineering.

I've seen one of these tables in person, a freind of mine has one on his yaht. (Lucky stiff won the lottery).

I tried to talk him in to letting me take it apart so I could document the workings but he wouldn't let me do it.

Man Some people....

Danny,
Can you shed any light on how this table works. I'm guessing some sort of concentric ring setup but I am truly mystified.

It has to have some kind of cams on it but as I said he wouldn't let me tak it apart, the bottom is sealed with covers so you can't see the workings but the bottom cover is mounted with screws so I assume thats where you could see how it works.

If I remember right (It's been a long time) the table opens up and the middle rises up. Course I could be wrong.
