Open Sesame

When unexpected guests magically appear, have no fear. This Abracadabra custom pedestal table, with the assistance of three 14-inch leaves, transforms from a compact, circular, 44-inch table into an 86-inch long, oval dining affair. When extended, the table’s pedestal cleverly cleaves into two sides for a sturdy base on each end. The table’s top, seen here, is made of hand-planed, 1.5-inch butcher block, while the apron and pedestal are crafted from maple with an antique parchment finish. To customize the table, customers can choose the size, wood species (maple, cherry, elm, hickory, oak, or quarter sawn white oak) and finish.

Prices vary, depending on wood, size and finish. Available at Unfinished Business of Cape Cod in West Yarmouth; 508-778-8123:
