Originally built for a customer in Wyoming, this was to be a custom, one-of-a-kind, expanding round table that we never thought we would build again. Boy were we wrong.
Expanding Round Table
Western Heritage Furniture’s version of the Expanding Round Table was actually inspired by a nearly 200 year old design, patented by Robert Jupe in 1835. While we are certainly not the only furniture company making these expandable tables today, we pride ourselves on the fact that we build each one, by hand, in our shop in Jerome, AZ.
One Person, Manual Operation
The table top spins on a simple “lazy Susan” style substructure, allowing you to spin the table so the leaves can easily be extended or pushed back into place without having to walk around any chairs or other obstacles. This also comes in handy when you want to sample someone else’s dish from across the table. Activate the locking mechanism underneath to prevent the tabletop from spinning.
The leaves are not automatic and the table does require slight manual operation. We truly love the automatic expansion tables you can find around the internet, and admire all of them – from the original Jupe Design, to the Fletcher Capstan Table – and we are equally impressed by the $100,000+ price tags. We prefer to keep the price of our expandable round dining table within an “affordable range” for those who don’t mind the manual function and have the extra 2 ½ minutes it takes to operate.
The Expandable Round Table from Western Heritage Furniture is truly a wonderful mixture of wood craftsmanship, ingenuity and old-fashioned mechanical “know-how”. We do not use any CNC machines, automated equipment or any other type of high volume production techniques.
Every table is made-to-order, one at a time, and customized to your specifications.
There are a variety of wood species, milling techniques (or lack thereof), patterns, base styles and finish options available to compliment your home, business, yacht, etc.
If you can dream it, we can build it. Visit our Pinterest Gallery for some examples of what other folks have done, or drop us a line to chat about the possibilities for your table.
The price of the Expanding Round Table is based on the following sizes and includes Western Heritage Furniture’s premium reclaimed wood or most domestic hardwoods. You can expect to pay a slightly higher price for additional customization, special sizes, features and exotic hardwoods.

Deposits & Shipping
There is currently an ever growing waiting list for the Expandable Round Table. A 50% deposit is required to secure your place in line and begin production. The balance is due upon shipping.
The preferred method of delivery is to let us bring it to you. A Western Heritage Furniture expert will schedule a time to come to your location, deliver and install the table, and teach you how to assemble, operate, and care for your investment. Delivery and installation are not included in the price of the Expanding Round Table and only available in the contiguous US.
Expanding Round Tables can be shipped internationally. To ensure that they arrive to you safely, they will need to ship disassembled. Although the installation is simple, professional delivery and assembly is recommended.
