Yeah... I was puzzled by the fact that the track was just surface mounted, rather than set into the wood. That may be a requirement for the hinges they used. I'm pretty much just thinking aloud in these posts, so assume anything I say will need some improvement. 8-)
If I could, I'd route out channels for the hinges, since I think it would look better. You might be able to put the pin in the table, rather than the leg -- make a piece that folds up into the t-track, but can fold down to brace the leg when necessary? I dunno... that's the piece that confuses me about what I saw there. I'm not sure they really even had a pin....
