Table extension slide recommendations?
« on: February 24, 2020, 04:21 PM »
I've taken on a commission to build a large extending dining room table -- and after initially saying that they had the hardware situation under control, and that I would just have to install the model they selected, the designers are now not quite as certain whether the slides they were recommending are going to work with a table as heavy as we are constructing.

So I'm wondering if anyone might have recommendations for heavy-duty table extension slides?  They have to be super robust and have a 36" capacity, which is the maximum size of the inserts that will be going in.

I'm not sure of any hardware specifically, but King Post Timberworks on YT recently did a large table that needed to be extended and built slides himself.  May be worth a look.

Hi -

We have a couple of slides that might fit your need....

These German ones:

Or these Heavy duty full extension slides, which you might be able to integrate into your design:
