Here in Hong Kong as one can imagine there is alot of beds in a very small area, alot of these beds often end up on the rubbish tip.
This table was built from the wooden slats that are tied together with a ribbon that are used to support mattress on IKEA beds, all found on the rubbish dump.

One thing I cant claim with this Folding BBQ table is design rights, plans for this are readily available although having said that the size of my table was governed by the second hand wood that I used.

A quick job on this table from the Ikea second hand wood, coated with ronseal decking oil. The highlight being that it easily folds away. I made a wooden bracket system so it stores inside on the wall below our two folding bbqing stools. Once again protected inside from the Hong Kong acid rain.

Thanks for reading and viewing

Thanks for the comments double DD , Yes the Hong Kong weather especially the acid rain is very very hard on anything kept outside , indoor space here in Hong Kong comes at a high cost so its great to be able to store on the wall inside.
Thanks again
