Bench / Table using frame parts

So I have tried a number of different approaches to a kitchen table over the years. I started with a bench long enough to be a backboard and attached a shelf using river straps, legs from aluminum tubing, and threaded legs. The plywood didn't hold up that great, but most of it worked well. I switched to an assortment of aluminum ideas...everything worked okay, but was a little tricky to assemble, the edges always made me a little nervous and I kept watching the Buzz for new ideas. Well, here is my latest, probably not the last version, but I hope others can get some ideas from it. I used marine plywood and spar varnish. Made the boards about 2' x 4', and I still have use of the double rails on my frame. Added a few holes for attachments, rounded and routed, and sealed. Next I used the same components that I have on my Rowframe frame (fittings, tubing, and pins. The table setup has an adjustable shelf using pins that can be set about every 8". The frame for my table breaks down to fit in the bottom of a drop bag, and I keep an Allen wrench attached to allow easy setup and adjustment. Just got back from its first trip. Happy with how it worked. Just thought I'd share.Click image for larger version
