This is another piece for my sister’s tiny house. The table is designed to fold away when not in use and has solid brass hardware including the locking pins I forged at a friend’s shop.

When we were looking at salvaged planks at the architectural salvage yard my sister found this small, unidentifiable, and very broken paneled piece and asked me to make it into a table. The entire thing was manure brown and had fallen apart. It was not symmetrical in any way so I knocked it apart and cut down the frame so everything matched. Then I cut a tongue into the panel and added an outer frame to hold everything together. After that I spent a very long time figuring out a good way to make this into a wall mounted folding table (I ran out of expletives by the time I finished). The table is solid oak with some scraps of purple heart in the corners for decoration.

Tiny houses are more common out here because even the most ratty houses cost a mint. They aren’t exactly an every day occurrence but you do run into them from time to time.
