Scamp Table

I pay Ukulele and guitar so the stock table just did'nt work. I built a small folding table. It is a great cocktail table when folded and 4 can still enjoy a meal when opened up. I ordered the bar and to table clips from the factory and a support leg. The new table folds against the wall and fuctions exactly as the standard table. So where's the bed support? I used three 3/4 inch slats that become the support for the bed. As an added benefit we use just one slat to let us put our legs up an recline.

...i like the idea of it folding in half...more room to move around!

The other advantage is that it's lite. 1/2 plywood. No more wrestling with that heavy table.

Where do you store the bed supports when using the table.

Did you edge it with wood veneer?

Ron, how stable is the outer half since the support leg looks to be under the inner half.

My first question as for Peto.

No edging. I used a maple veneer plywood 1/2 and routed and sanded the edging smooth. Looks nice with varnish. It's 0nly 30 inches unfolded so lots of room to get around.

It's split between the to halves. I also have a piece of 1/8 iron that pulls out, but it's not really needed. see pic

Kevin,

I used two full extension drawer slides that pull out to support the outer half.

I love that adaptive re-use of the drawer slides!

We also use the drawer slides on our folding, hinged folding table. Visitors always remark how much it opens the trailer and makes sitting easier.

We carry a plastic PVC, rubber tipped leg to support the end of the drawer slides. The open end of the pipe simply slips over two screws in the bottom of the wooden piece on the end of the drawer slides.

The rarely used pipe resides in the overhead cabinet with the bedding. We have a shorter pipe that we use when sleeping that slips over the same screws since the table extends beyond the dinette's table top support in the bed mode.

Beside's the better use of space, it looks better than it's predecessor.
