These are some fold down work tables that I made using cherry and ambrosia maple, plus a couple of 2×4s…
Drilled 20mm holes for festool accessories. I’ll eventually add front rails with dog holes for vertical clamping needs like hinge mortising, edge routing, etc. I only use them for light duty needs, but they hold up very well especially for the minimal hardware involved.
There is also the tool cabinet in the pictures, made using mostly white oak, and some particle board veneered in quarter sawn that I salvaged from an old bookcase.
If I remember correctly, I found both plans out of Shopnotes, but I changed mine up quite a bit. I didn’t use full legs on mine, or full side supports, or the swing brackets. Just simple hinges is enough to keep everything in place and hold strongly even when under heavy pressure. On the cabinet, I used drawer slides for the sliding action too, not what the plans called for.
