Looks good Paula, what do you use for legs? Or do you make the table to sit on top of another table/surface? I made a few that folded like that but I always had problems with the legs and the middle wanting to sag, ended up with an extra folding wood leg in the middle, but I was never really happy with it.

well this one is hinged and for on top of a picknick table, i usually get a set of folding legs from home depot for about 20 bucks. anchor then to a couple of 1×4 then mount the pong table on, no problems with sagging middle because i put a frame under it about 1/2 the size on each side of the table itself

Yeah I usually go with the home depot ones too, HF sells them as well but they are only a couple dollars cheaper than HD so I usually go for the HD ones.

Do you add poly or lacquer after you paint the tops?

I do the same with the legs though, build a 1”x2” frame around the underside, then put either scrap 1”x or 2×4’s to mount the legs to. They are tanks, the legs would break before the table. I also started recessing the triangle down about 1.5” for play in windy conditions!
