Thanks everyone for all the help with my last forum topic – trying to figure out a design for a chiropractic adjusting table. You guys came up with a lot of good points, and at the end I just realized that it wasn’t going to work (atleast not for now). Even though I liked how the last design looked, I think this will be a lot stronger, and easier to build. There are no hinges. Instead the two pieces will be bolted together for easy putting together and taking apart. To “fold up,” you’ll just place one on top of the other and I’ll have some sort of guitar case latches or something to hold it together – plus a handle to carry it. Also there are now 8 legs (I might go down to 6 for weight issues) that fit into a sort of socket. I will have to get these cuts perfect so the legs fit in nice and snug.
Now the verdict. What do you guys think? better than the last design? any comments/concerns/suggestions are ALL welcome (good and bad). Thanks a lot!
I also started building a “mock up.” I used OSB for the platform, because I will not sell this one, to make it cheaper (unless you guys think OSB would be fine??). The last picture is what I have so far – everything is glued and screwed. No legs yet.
