Metal Mechanism Expanding Table

September 10, 2018

The metal mechanism table project is underway! Check out the first in the series below.

The mechanical strategy will be similar in many ways to the prototype introduced here. In order to make the project accessible I will be making a few design changes. The main ones are:

  • Steel frame
  • MIG welding and an angle grinder will be the only “metalworking” tools required. (i.e. no lathe or mill required)
  • 5′ or 1.5 meter starting diameter (expansion ratio tbd)

If you would like to be notified when plans are available please send me an e-mail at
