The mother of a past customer contacted me. She has been looking for a nice folding table to put on top of her cushioned ottoman for times when they have company. The trick was that it had to fold up for storage in the closet when they didn’t have people over. I agreed to make one – after looking at her living room I decided on walnut and ash with butternut as the main part of the body (because it isn’t too heavy). The stripes in the middle are yellow heart, blood wood, and hickory. Finish is wipe on poly and danish oil.
I used concealed hinges for the top with a hinged apron underneath. The apron folds out and thumb screws are used to connect to the side aprons and keep the table rigid. When they want to put it away the screws come out, the apron folds down, and the same thumb screws will hold the apron away.
