I was copying a teak tray table we have, to practice.
Made with some treated pine leftovers from a pool deck I built.
I made the jig for a grated top. The rest of it nothing fancy, a learned a lot through continuing mistakes. That´s life.
Total wood cost was not more than $ 5. But the plan called for brass hinges to fix the handles. And 8 hinges would amount to $120. So I decide not to put good money over bad one, and change the tray table, to a lift coffe table. Lift hardware would also cost $100, so I finally made the lift with four pieces of wood screwed to the base and the top.
Frankly is quite popular at home. I´ve been requested to built a lot of them, since laptops have replaced desks PCs. (Not planning to sell internet yet, just kidding)
Thanks for viewing
