Hide-away dining table

by on Nov 16, 2006

Having chairs and furniture that fold away can help utilize mixed use spaces. Like new urbanism applied to the inside of your home, folding furniture makes it possible for areas to serve several purposes. If your computer is a notebook computer, a dining table can quickly become a desk. My dining table has legs on only one end. The other end of the table rests in a groove on the wall while in use. When not in use the table easily folds away and is stored under a desk area. To build a fold-away table, one simply needs a flat working service (narrow and light weight are easier to work with and store). The legs of the table can be connected using hinges allowing the legs to fold up when not in use. A piece of wood can be used to join the two legs of the table at one end. Amazing!
