I just finished making this little miniature,” V”-shaped Video conferencing table for a show coming up this week. I had some scrap ribbon striped mahogany hardwood left in stock. Also I used solid ebony to represent the little pop-up electrical grommets on the top. It took me about 7 hours to make.

On the full scale sized table we use hidden casters on all the bottoms of the legs. One person can easily open and close the table. In the open position the top width is 10’-0”, with a 30 degree angle removable piece of pie on each side. In the closed position the table is 4’-0” wide and 16’-0” long.

Depending on the size of the room & the size of the table. And the degree of the pie pieces. Will determine the size of the opening.

I love seeing this Dennis. For me it is like a peak into your world as a design comes together.

Very cool. Not only does it demonstrate excellent design, but a remarkable amount of dexterity to build something so small.

This is great, Dennis. Very nice design. This is one of those things that I wish I would make myself do, before building a new or prototype piece. Thanks for the post.

Very cool, I would love to see that full size. Is the full size table hinged in the same manner or do you make some kind of fancy wood hinge

Thats awesome Dennis, I think it would take me more than 7 hours to do it, and wouldn’t look as good. LOL
Same wood I suppose for the big one. Can you make the “pop ups” do a roll over instead? Shaped as a triangle, they could roll over and remain flush to the top.

Hi Dennis;

Very Cool!!!

I’m betting the full sized one took more than seven hours.

Ingenious design.

Dennis: A great design. The minature really make the point as to how it works.
