Holiday furniture restoration

I seem to have a backlog of furniture restoration projects for the holidays.  First off the rank is a modern dining table with an interesting extension mechanism.  The table is in reasonable condition except for a worn and possibly water damaged table top.  A couple of days sanding and polishing seems to have done the trick.  The extension leaves are screwed to angled battens which slide under a central frame which supports the main table top.  In what might be a fine furniture making first I used epoxy to fill the damaged screw holes so I could redrill and secure the extension leaves.
