Hello everyone!
Was disconnected long ago, had a problem with the connection and was without internet.
In the south emisferio’s summer, so many times we take to dinner in the garden or even daytime relief in the wind outside is sought.
So while note the need for a small table that is easily portable outside. Also had to be lightweight and comfortable to keep. So I decided for a collapsible model.
In the pictures you can see the result. I remain very strong and very light, as kiri wood use. No termination has more than a hand sanding.
I was very happy with the result and add several points with my wife!
Merit? I can only say that the round wood, which is grasped, once closed, was made by hand with a spokeshave.
Greetings to all!

Great idea and design on this. One can always use an extra table…..especially outside to dine on.

Good work.
That is a popular design in the US. You can use the design for making folding stools up to bigger tables.
I would like to suggest you cut the bottom end of the legs at an angle that is parallel with the top when the table is in the open position. That way the bottom of the leg will set flat on the floor. Or you can do as I have done and make the end of the leg rounded.
