Help me design a table like this?

I have long dreamed of building a capstan table for my home like DB Fletcher's beautiful designs (google it if you aren't familiar). I have researched various jupe tables and similar expanding round tables with none that satisfied me - either they were designs I was afraid to try and recreate then build, or the product was not what I wanted for my home.

But I now have found a very satisfactory compromise; something I feel is possible for me to design and build myself, and which would look great in my home.

I just don't have enough time in the day to do all of my projects... so I am hoping to find some collaborators here who will contribute time to help me design a knock-off of this table. Here's a link to an swf demonstration of the table in action... http://ashleighengineeringservices.co.uk/sei/s/3786/fe2146247.swf

So... who wants to help me out?

How's it going? It took David Fletcher 15 years to design ... I'd like to help, but only have SolidWorks drawing experience, and a bit of wood working. Some CNC skills, too.

This guy recreated the design of the table you're referring to: http://hackaday.com/2014/12/07/an-expanding-wooden-table/

Can you please add part3.prt to the download link?

Very, very helpful. Thank You!
Karossii, are you perhaps capable of converting the SolidWorks files to Google Sketchup?
