Help again - another stumper
Gonna be building a dining table. Daughter wants it expandable (ie, at least one leaf). Wife thinks it would be neat if the top boards ran lengthways instead of across. She thinks it would be no more of a problem to cut the lengthways board and fit a lengthways leaf in than it is to do it with the standard crossways boards. Down deep I know this is just wrong, but I cant say why. Help! Has anyone out there tried this lengthways table top with a leaf? What would be the problem? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
