Since you are saying “collapsible” you are wanting it to split into 2 pieces to move and store correct? two tables 4’ by 4’.

One suggestion would be to look at some of the model railroad module standards. With the modules, modlers can set up small sections to make a large layout.

I’d make two frames 4’ by 4’, place cross supports in the frame. on top of cross supports place ridged blue insulation, covered with hardboard(so surface is flat and does not get dents). attach the fence on 3 sides.

For legs you could use two saw horses. But I would suggest attaching two legs with nuts and bolts (so they are removable), in the bottom of the drill holes and insert T-nuts with a leveling bolts (like you see on some furniture) in them (this makes the table adjustable if the floor is uneven).

When you set up have a couple of clamps handy to clamp the two sections together.

Sort of a little general, but ask feel free to ask me any questions.

for reference here is one way to do a module.
