A lady who bought 2 of my folding tall chairs this summer called and asked if I could build her a tall folding side table to go with the chairs to put coffee/drinks on. Why didn’t I think of that? So I designed and built this one from the same recycled barn wood as her chairs. She picked it up today, loved it and wrote me a check. Others who have my chairs will probably want these tables to go with them. Wish I had come up with this earlier! The cutlist pretty much explains the build and dimensions. Pretty simple once I figured out where to put the bolt holes so they would fold.

That’s a nice one Andy. I particularly like the use of repurposed wood.

Brilliant, Doc. It’s never too late . . . they’ll be back for more . . . you just wait and see!
