I have friends that almost live in a motorhome and enjoy many quiet outdoor things. They also are fond of wine. After seeing a few folding wine tables, I decided to try one.

Made from just cheap pine. Actually shop scraps.
Sorry not shown outside-raining!

Proto-type seems serviceable. Designed to fold quite flat, and even stay horizontal when pouring the wine also.
I use a turned plunger type piece for that. I made a type of gate-leg to hold the flatness when up.

Shows in the pictures.

The next one will have different spacing on the handhold and the glass-spots.

I like.

But I have to tell you…I misread the title of the blog—I read ‘whiners’. :D

I really like the design and concept of the table. This gave me a few ideas. Thanks for sharing.

If anyone makes changes/improvements; Please show us. I am still changing my design as I make a few more.

Newest ones are from fence cedar (free-wood). I am using 2 pieces glued together then supported with under-bracing to add the needed strength! They are a lot lighter and just as strong. I know how fast weight adds up in an RV! I also changed the handle design to just a short piece of 3/8 manila rope for the ease of hanging, carrying and storage.

I do need to singe the rope, but knew that from making ropes pout of old baler twine on the farm decades ago.

Other ideas and suggestions will be appreciated!
