I built this table for my wife and I love how much space this table saves when it's all folded up.

I really like the way you used the brackets instead of legs. I've wondered about the legs getting in the way, too. Obviously when you changed the measurements to fit your space you also made the "wings" of the table top shorter than in the original design. How big are they? What is the finished width/length of the tabletop when it is opened up?

Yep, I made the table a bit smaller to fit our place. I only made them 12in x 24in. But if I had more room, I wouldn't hesitate extending the wings to 18+in x 24in. The brackets are very stable and could easily handle larger leaves. The table fully opened up is 39.5in x 24in.
