Default Drop leaf table

Hi Y'all:
I have only been on the Forums a few weeks and I have found it to be a real goldmine for help with problems and seeing others experince.
Kudos to Bob & Rick for their excellent work. I have watched "Router Workshop" on TV for two seasons but it isn't on Toronto this year so the forums are a great help.
I found an article by Mark Eaton on the net about making a hall table from scraps of wood and decided to make a small drop leaf table for our den to replace the crummy metal tv tables. Seems like the news always comes on while we are having supper. So, I used a lot of the ideas from Mark's table plus a lot of things learned from the Router Workshop plus a lot of very valuable info and photos from the forums that was very much appreciated.
I was having a problem getting the drop leaf joint to work properly and was able to get all the info and help that I needed plus pics to make a successful joint.
I sure generated a lot of sawdust making try pieces first though!
Many thanks.
Mo Adams

Hey Mo, bah on crummy metal tables. Nothing like eating off a home made "WOODEN" table. Nice job, and we do have a few old timers to help out. I'm not one, I'm just old.

Old is anybody older than me and I'm only 87.
I did make one concession though, I sold my airplane last year.
