Folding Table Top

Folding Table Top
KAPOW 2021 Week 17WoodworkingApril 25, 2021
KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

Several weeks ago I built a fold-up camp table. The table design is based on a fold-up table that my father builds. The design is great, small, and super useful at camp. I have one of my father’s table (picture below) and built this one.

As mentioned above, I built the table a couple of weeks ago. I put a thick coat of epoxy resin on the top I made….and it was kind of a disaster. So, this week for the KAPOW, I built this new top of out strips of varying woods. It came out looking nice.

Rethinking the design of the table top, I would put a thin strip of wood running 90 degrees to the strips along the edge that makes the seam of the table top. I think it would look nicer and also be a stronger joint to keep the table top together better longer.

Remember, there is no definition of art…..
