Making the dropleaf supports

The drop leaves are supported by pivoting supports. Housed along the top edge of the side rails, the supports pivot on dowels to hold the drop leaves when they are extended, then align with the rails when the leaves are not needed. Rip a 7/s-inch-wide strip from the edge of each side rail, then adjust your table saw's miter gauge to a 70° angle. Cut a 103/4-inch-long piece from each end of the strip (right). The piece between the cuts will be the drop-leaf support; the two end pieces will be glued back onto the side rail (step 2). Make the other support the same way.
