I went to visit him last night because, well, mainly because he's working on something for ME. If I didn't get my own spot out there I'd be some upset. Yes, I do need my own craft room in the house and space in the garage, why do you ask?
Tom reworked the original and I really like what he's done. I thought the long edge would be against the wall making just the front useful, but he built it so it folds out (like an ironing board) and now I can work all the way around it.
And it has legs for extra support.
Don't you just love how it folds up?
And the cute little hook to keep it in place?
Now could he just get the rest of the garage finished so I can start making a mess?
Update: People have asked for some detailed pictures of how it mounts to the wall and how the legs attach, so I've added more here.
There is a piano hinge attaching the table to the support board on the wall. Excuse the dust and dirt.
Since the original post we’ve also added an electrical switch to make it easier to use power tools. You plug your tool into the yellow end, plug the black end into the wall outlet (or an extension cord), and flip the switch. Power without having to run cords all over the place, and an easy shut off.
I hope these extra pictures help! If you end up building a fold down table of your own, please send me a link or a picture - I’d love to see it.
