Wow!...

thank you so much Tony! that actually helped me to understand A LOT!
one small question...with the elongated holes...you mill a piece to fit that hole size correct? you dont use a round dowel in there do you?
oh, and how would you finish that?
MAN!, I LOVE THIS SITE!

A round dowel fits into the round hole on top and bottom of the end piece and passes through the elongated hole on the table top. This allows the table top which is made of several boards glued together (acting as one big board) to move back and forth with expansion and contraction with the dowel going through the elongeated hole on the table top.
I hope that makes sense.

Also not that the end pieces dont 'float' as in loosely. They fit relatively snugly because the expansion and contraction is relatively slow and this slow and steady force can move with a good amount force.

mmhmm...

totally makes sense...i didnt know the elongated hole was hidden inside the end pieces...when you sent the "schematics", i realized that the ends would be snug with the dowels acting as pins. thanks again Tony, invaluable information to me!
would you finish it all together or apart to get the parts where the bread ends touch the table top...don't know if exp/contr will cause to separate showing a good gap with bare wood?!?!
