Topic tags/keywords: question

I want to make a table similar to a writing table that would either have a way to extend over bed for when im being lazy on laptop, or maybe counter balanced type legs, just dont know where to look and my imagination is not helping, any thoughts would be appreciated.

oh my bed frame sits on the floor so the option of running feet under bed is out, kinda like the hospital bed tables,,, again thanks for any advice

I’d put down legs running away from the bed and find a way to put sufficient weight on the legs to keep the table secure. I’d probably make a box that I would fill with sand or rock.

With the extra weight required, you may want to put wheels on the table so you can roll it in and out of place.
