extendable round table

I would like a round table that when extended remains round. I plan of having it custom built with a good carpenter I have, but I need ideas for the mechanism by which to extend it. I would like it to become as large as possible. Suggestions please?

Why custom build when there are many makers that already have them?

The key is the mechanism.

I was interested myself in this table from a profesional point of view. I made some very broad inquires about the mechanism. As far as I know D Fletcher owns the rights to the mechanism. I did see one other cabinet maker reverse engineer the table and come up with his own version but thats it. The mechanism is very very compilcated. The people who have figured it out tend to keep it close to there vest for good reason and sadly I am not one of them. Maybe some day I will spend the time but not now :) The best I can do for you is this link http://www.dbfletcher.com/. Be prepaired for the price $$$$$$$

I went into the Fletcher website you mentioned. WOW!
Are there any less sophisticated and less expensive options to expand the table and keep the round shape?

Not that I know. But the first post from Interiors International says that he knows of many manufacturers. Interiors who???? If I could find someone who sold the mechanism I'd be making them as well.

Skovby is a company that makes round dining table that expand out. By their nature, there are no inexpensive table that function this way. However, skovby makes them more simple without the amazing pinwheel expansion in the video above so they may be easier on the wallet.
