This is the folding table that my lovely wife asked for. She picked out the wood. Oak ply 3/4 inch, and 1×3 oak for the apron. I still have a few touch ups to do (like add a handle and leg levelers). She is very pleased with it. As am I. The legs are some 1 1/2” poplar I had laying around. The table stand 2 feet high and is 2 ft wide by 3ft long. I know that the apron should have been at least a 1×4, but the wife did pick out the wood. She is going to use it as a craft table. I may make some more of these as they were not that expensive to make. I am also looking at making some card table styles as well. When I build the next one I am planning on mitering the corners.

Anyways the boss is happy and so am I.

I need to make something very similar. Where did you get the hinges?
