VIDEO LINK is to Youtube
This is a portable massage table and/or a chiropractic “pelvic bench” that I’ve designed and made. I made it for a fellow chiropractor. It folds up for easy travel and storage. It is really sturdy when it is unfolded and in use.
All hardware is from a Big Box Store. Legs are made of oak, and the rest is pine and BCX Plywood. I did all the upholstering myself, including the pillow. The pillow fits inside the bench when folded up.
I did not want to drill any holes through the leather for a handle so I came up with a suspension handle. The handle is made out of 550 paracord that I tied myself. The knot is called the cobra knot, or Solomon Bar. You can learn how to do that here (youtube channel) This guy in the link has tons of awesome knots that you can make with paracord. I suspended the handle on the inside by srewing and epoxying a block of wood with an eyebolt in it (see pics).
The latch, to keep it closed, is just and eye bolt and hook that you latch from inside the “breathe hole.”
I forgot to weigh it (damnit), but it is light enough to carry around.
