Looking for ideas on how to build a fold away table. currently have a retro drop leaf but is big and bulky.

Probably you are looking for something larger, but I wanted a very small and inobtrusive folding table - coffee table height - to use in the lounge area at the front of our trailer either to serve as a small table for drinks / snacks, or on a pinch to serve as a footstool.

I found a very inexpensive yet solidly made wooden TV dinner table with folding legs. It was only about $10-$15 on sale. Most likely from China or Taiwan, but looks fine.

Because it was originally tv dinner table height, I cut down the legs, moving the pivot point when I did so in order that it remain stable, and we have used it for years.

I don't have the trailer at the house. but I do have another new identical table that I have not modified that I could photograph in the vent it is of any interest to you.

I bought two initially thinking to have one each for both of us in front of the sofa, but one table seems adequate and creates less clutter. We can both put our feet up on the one table!

Have a look at this thread.
If it's to be, it's up to me.
