Want a mobile table base that provides
a huge work area, holds a ton
and folds up to only 7 in. thick? You
can get everything you need to make
the one shown here at the local home
center for about $65. Build it to any
size. Just make sure the folding support
arms (E) and panels (F) fit inside
the end frames, so the assembled table
folds up completely. Screw on a top
when you need a work surface and
remove it when you’re ready to stow
the table. Hook-and-eye catches
hold the folding supports
open when the table is
in use and keep it
