Never saw it in a magazine but made internet rounds about a year or so ago, I think it was made by those medieval reinacters.

Rick,

Yes, I have seen that one. It is the same general idea, but the one I remember was taller and not so deep. It could double as a stand for a flat-screen television. I guess I’ll keep looking through my magazine collection. . . or I’ll just end up designing it from scratch. I was hoping to save a little time.

jbay, I think that is the same plan that Rick mentioned. It’s not quite what I remember, but thanks for the picture.

Rick, your latest addition is very similar to what I had in mind. I really appreciate the links for it! I’ll still redesign it slightly to use solid wood rather than plywood, but it certainly will save me a lot of time. The one I remember used plywood, too, but I don’t think it hinged the top platform pieces together—just laid them across the base and stored them inside with (I think) a door on either end. Thanks very much.

Kevin,

Thanks for the link. That one is very similar to the one above that jbay posted. It’s shorter and wider than what I was hoping to make. The one that Rick posted is pretty similar to the one I remember. By using features from the two versions, I think I can accomplish what I’ve envisioned.

Thank you for your response.
