Using only top quality marine 7 ply board, piano hinges instead of loose pin hinges and a Formica top we created the masterpiece above. You come in carrying what looks like a briefcase and immediately you drop all but the top of the case. Instantly a table appears, which has a working surface of 13.5" x 20.5". It is sturdy and will hold up as long as you take care of it. It is beautifully finished with natural oil and really looks like a piece of furniture.
