Topic tags/keywords: question

Hello, I am drawing out plans now for a workbench. Space is limited and I move often enough so I am planning a smaller table but with extending top. I have looked at table hardware and it seems alright though a bit pricey. I am thinking of using 3/4” metal pipe into bored out 1×1. But not really sure how solid it would be. anyone have any previous expeirience?

How about these fold down shelf brackets from Rockler. They are a bit pricey, but work pretty well.
