I posted this on the GardenWeb woodworking forum, as i often visit other forums on GardenWeb. Realized I might get tons more input here on Lumberjocks…
I am planning to build a long, narrow wooden table that will go between the sofa and the wall. It will be 26” tall, 16” deep and 111” long. To make it easier to maneuver, I plan to construct it in three sections of 37” in length.
I thought the hinge would be an easy thing. At first I thought of a piano hinge with some sort of stay that will prevent the table top from slamming closed, but I don’t want the table top (when closed) to have space between the sofa back and the wall so a piano hinge will not work. Right?
Is there a hinge that would work in this situation? Once I find a hinge, I can better figure out the construction of the table support.
Thanks in advance! I am ready to finalize my plans so I can get started on the build.
