Furniture Maker Demonstrates His Rotating, Expanding Table

July 6, 2018

This is a video of furniture maker George Johnson of Johnson Furniture demonstrating the first rotating, expanding dining table he ever built. It's similar in design to this previously posted $50,000 rotating, expanding dining table, except George's requires an extra step of folding the six leaves out. Would I still eat $42 of Burger King on it in one sitting? Challenge accepted. "That wasn't a challenge." You drive a hard bargain, but deal, I'll also do a six pack of Cinnabons for dessert. "There's no deal!" The full size ones, not the minis.

Keep going for the whole video while I call George and tell him to rack up some beer pong.

Thanks to n0nentity, who agrees that is probably not the table you want to fall on in a backyard wrestling match.

    "And then my drunk uncle leaned against the table and ruined Thanksgiving."

    - Somebody who spends too much money on tables (probably).

    Impressive. Now only if it could be used to make d20 rolls.

  • Meseta

    This is not as good as the FLetcher Capstan table, which doesn't require manually folding out the parts. The whole thing just rotates out:

    True, I was going to say the same thing.
    One major difference is the better one is out of round when in small mode, where as this one is out of round when it is in large mode.

    Ok. Now bake a pizza that size.

  • TheQiwiMan

    That’s pretty awesome. (Not $50K-worth of awesome, but pretty awesome anyway)

    All the way locked open at 0:54, is it the wood grain that makes it look warped/wavy?

  • Ollie Williams

    Looks like it's because the extra pieces that fold out are flat edged, and the normal table is round, so there are flat and round edges when fully locked.

    A woodworker named Johnson, eh?

    I laughed too long at this.
