Folding Leg Game Table

I built this gaming table for a customer who wanted folding wooden legs so it could be stored when not in use. Its 5’ x 3.5’ and 29 inches tall all bade from poplar and birch ply. I took some time figuring out the leg pivot mechanisms, they are all wood. I was planning to attach them directly to the bottom but after I got them completed I decided an apron would be better. There is a 1/4” ply board covered in the blue speed cloth on the playing surface and the drink holders are all removable. The legs do look skinny but I was trying to keep the wieght down where possible, its is very sturdy becasue the legs fold out and then insert into a pocket.

very nice work – I need one of these myself to supplement my full size table during tournaments – this gives me some great ideas and the inspiration to build it someday…
Thank you for posting

Very nice – Did you use any padding under the speedcloth?

Thanks for the comments. @Matt I put down a layer of 1/8” EVA foam squares and then covered with speed cloth.
