Portable folding table – Whether it’s a poker game, a flea market, crafts or computer table-almost anyone could use a small wooden table in the house. Building your own table can be a little challenging, but it will possibly save money in the long run. Anyone can do this project; it only takes a few supplies and a little effort. Saw two 18-inch profiles from the 1-inch-by-6-inch wood and then cut them both in half. The four will make up the top of the table. Clips of four 16-inch-by-1 1/2-inch sections of the legs and a 16-inch-by-2 1/2-inch section of the stretcher. Cut two 10-inch-by-1 3/4-inch pieces for cutting the leg supports and two 10-inch-by-1 1/4-inch pieces for small stretchers.
Sand the wood elements on all sides and lay them flat with the good side facing down. Use the table saw to the square outside the four pieces on the ends. Make 1/4-inch space in between the boards. Attaching the boards under the table top. Use two screws to attach the center board and a screw in each outer board. Outer edge outside boards should be 16 inches apart and 1 inch from the edges. The middle support board should have a border that lines up with the center of the portable folding table. Connect the wide legs and stretchers with an overlap joint. Place a board on top of the other at right angles and screw them together.
See slender legs fit in the spots before you glue them in. Attach the legs after the glue dries and using a 1/4-inch-by-5 inch bolts and unlock nut to hold the pair of legs together. And then you may need to use washers for the spaces between the stretchers you might need to have the legs to make them fit flat against the table top. Test them first to see if they fit. Use the hinges to secure outside support and the center legs of the supports. Screw the magnetic center table support. This is where it will keep the slim legs centered on the table. Stain the portable folding table to the desired color.
