It's Like Magic: Beautifully Expanding Wooden Table

February 15, 2013


This is a video of a large wooden table that can expand into an even larger wooden table with a couple latch pulls and a twist. The Fletcher Capstan Table is made by Fletcher Burwell-Taylor Ltd and ranges in price from $50,000-$70,000. *spitting up tacos* Did that just say $50,000? "You wrote it, dummy." Then it must be true! Women find me irresistible by the way. You know what I do if I throw a party and need a bigger table to accommodate everyone? Make people sit on the floor.

Hit the jump for a video of the table doing its thing.

Thanks to rebecca and Argh, who heard expanding tables are the work of sorcerers. That's why they cost so much, because of the magic.

    Looks like it's on a boat. I can't afford the table, I sure as hell can't afford this boat-lol.

    Worth every single penny! For the price of only $50.000 more, you can fit about 5 more people at the same table!

    Yeah I have seen this cool table like 4 years ago on youtube, checked out the price on em, they were around 100 thou back then. They are mostly made for multi-million dollar big yachts like the one in the video here. There are knock off tables like this that are around 10 grand though.

    For the life of me I can't tell whether it's the small, large, or both states which are slightly not a circle, it has to be one because the arc can't be the same for both of them, but it's far to slight for me to see.

    Its a big table, when its small its not a circle until the outer ring is moved into its final position

  • Soooo after it's open there's now a huge unusable surface area in the middle that only a giant could possibly reach. Very utilitarian.

  • Ramuran

    for centerpieces :3

    This is as old as fuck. I remember seeing this like 6 years ago.

    That expensive table is on an even more expensive boat.

  • CryHavoc

    Admittedly cool but come on.....$50-70,000?? ridiculous!

  • You'd be surprised of the prices you find in high-end furnishing, my friend ;)

  • ZomBBombeR

    I don't think it's the price but it's apparent value that shocks; I'm sitting here thinking hmmm luxury vehicle or expanding table??

  • Stephane Morrell

    That's one of the coolest things I've ever seen

  • Prometheus

    WTF GW, are you looking through 2 year old tips?
