I've seen tables that had the leaves folded under the edges, in various
different ways, piano hinge type stuff, and regular folding ones, but that
sounds interesting. I've seen one that had a sort of pedestal and the
leaves folded down, there were extensions inside the pedestal part, but that
capstan table is gorgeous, such a conversation piece.
It's fun to examine furniture designs and see how they did things.
When you hurt another person the one who is hurt the most is yourself.

One of the coolest things about this is that you don't have to worry where
to store the extensions. When I was a kid my Mom's table had 3 and they
were always disappearing when we needed them.
We have a large square table I inherited from my grandmother that has
storage space underneath for two leaves that make it into a rectangular
table either 50% or 100% longer. I always liked the design.
