I had a number of pieces of oak that were the center of the tree, split, or had a lot of knots (common) that were occupying valuable space in my stock pile. My daughter, who is in a wheelchair, told my wife that when she goes goes on a picnic, it is difficult without a table. Timing is everything—time to make a light wieght folding table that she can take anywhere. After a couple of iterations, this is what came out of it. One table that is not shown has a solid oak top. This is one of those projects that takes advantage of those off boards because of the small pieces.
The only hardware used are the screws to secure the slats, everthing else is wood. These were fun to make and make great gifts. Because of their construction, they can be made in any size.
