DIY lightweight table

Hello Boaters,

Must be someone out there who has built or tried to build a table with plywood top and PVC legs/fittings. Does it work? What's your design?

thanks, Mark

How about plywood top and roll-a-table legs. I still be rolling with this I posted about many years ago:

Rolly table legs for sale:

or if you already have a skid guard or other plywood seat deck you can just add some t-nuts to it and use regular, like the shorter table below, just regular roll-a-table legs on this one instead of the adjustable:

The right size that fit rolly table leg studs.

What every size they are, they are pretty standard cause I just got them at Home Deposit.

A poor pic showing the home made table deck with the adjustable rolly table legs and the stock skid guard deck we had that I added t-nuts and using standard rolly table legs from 2 weeks ago.

Haha, I was hoping to reverse-engineer them. I may build one with a wood top.

The threaded tips of my roll-a-table are definitely not 1/4" but instead 5/16" and looks to be 20 threads per inch...

You are correct, sorry that I gave bad information. I just checked the threads on my Roll-A-Table by running a die over them and they are 5/16 x 18 thread. Just shows that you can't trust everything on the internet.
