Been lurking around the site for a while and decided to post one of my first projects. If you been in the U.S. Army, you should remember this simple but handy folding field table. Been looking for the plans to make one and found them on the internet.
Table measures 24” x 36” and 27” tall and made from 1/2” plywood, 2”x2” and 1”x4”. Assembles easily with bolts and nuts, hinges, screws, a couple of wing nuts and u-straps. One item I did improvise on was with the u straps for the middle support. I found conduit hanging straps worked just fine, since they have the holes placements needed. The bolts throught the top are countersunk deep and filled with clear epoxy to level it off. I never did like the Army’s olive drab scheme so I went with Minwax gunstoke stain and several coats of polyurethane.
It comes in very handy for setting the tools aside while working and a quick lunch table. When folded down, it is about 3” thick, so easy to tote around. I know, almost too good to lay any tools on.
One of my first project and more to come. Thanks for taking a look.
