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.

Nice! Hope it does not draw attention away from your boxes and other items.

How light is light?

I haven’t weighed it Tom…but is not heavy at all. It just seems more appropriate than a cloth table cover we have been using.
