I just completed a new display desk for our craft show booth. We previously used a grey cloth cover on our existing table and I have never really liked the way it looked…but it served its purpose.
A couple of weeks ago i ran across some old salvaged beaded board siding from a very old train station n Mississippi that dated back to the 1800’s…and instantly knew what I wanted for the new booth desk. The frame is made from some old sinker cypress I had in the shop that had been begging for just the right project..
I designed this to be used in several size configurations ranging from 27” x 12” and larger to 50”x 20”. It easily comes apart into 3 pieces since i used some bed rail fasteners and hinges. It folds flat and is compact, lightweight and easy to move. I cut a piece of quarter round cypress to fit in the corner that will hide the hinges in that one configuration and give it a cleaner look…First priority is to keep it easy to set up and take apart.
