This rail supports a dining room table with 3 leaves. It feeds through a hole in the underside of the table on either end and is secured by means of a peg that goes through a hole in the rail. It is slightly tapered on either end so that the thicker, middle section in strong enough to support the leaves. I have an existing rail which can be copied. Whoever does this job will need to take dimensions on site or take away the existing rail to copy.

Thank you Jim

Yes, we just need the one rail that we have duplicated as the other got cut down. Maple would be quite nice, but frankly indifferent to the wood used - just needs to be sealed. Here is a photo of the underside of the table showing you how it works. Kind regards, Jim
So the job is to make a rail with org holes? Do you have any preference on the wood to be used?. I have some lengths of maple that I can laminate and plane to the same dimensions and drill the peg holes in?

Do you have a pic of the table??
