Another summer, another project.  Since we put the garage up and have the nice fire pit, we find ourselves having more picnics.  At least with the garage, if the weather turns sour, we have a place to enjoy.  got to thinking the other day about what a pain it is to find enough tables.  you always need a large food table and that seems to come after you have all the seating. The hillbilly workshop has the answer.  The flip down food table.  Got the first one done tonight.  It's only 4 feet long and 32" deep but I plan to have three of these for food and one more to hold the drinks, plates and plastic ware.  The first unit still needs some tweaking but overall, I am pleased.  As you can see, it's fastened to the wall on hinges.  Lift the latch and the table folds down.  Legs come out and supports the outside.  I realize this is probably nothing new but I rather liked getting into the workshop for a change and creating something useful.

I thought of doing that. but instead I built regular work tables. Good thing, as soon as they were built they acuminated stuff so they would never go back into the stored position. Good job though!

If I built that it would get loaded with stuff then the fold up feature would only be for show!

Looks nice!

Edit: that was terrible autocorrect..

Jeff, nice job.
They will get used more than you know.
I was at a picnic recently and they had an inflatable food cooler.
Kind of a small inflatable mattress with high sides, about 4' long and 2' wide. Fill it with ice and put all your salads in it. Worked well... Pasta and potato salads were just right temp wise and it was hot out.

Looked like this one, I must've been short on my guess measurement.

I have seen those.  Really a great idea there.  Don't need much room to store it after use.  I like it.

I like the idea but it wouldn't work for my garage...no wall space & if it's s table I got something on it. I did do this in a cabin we had when the kids were little...drop down counter space worked real good too.

Yeah, this idea originally came to me as a fold down work bench and that may still happen at some point.  For now I still have the workbench in the shop if I need one.  I don't have the wall space to do too much of this but the garage is still new enough that I wanted to squeeze these in before I lost it.  I just need to have all of these done before my dads 92nd birthday next month so we can try them out.

Those are nice.  I didn't even realize they offered something like that.  I need to get out more I guess.

Neither did I honestly. I ended up doing a ton of research for my garage since space is limited. After wanting to build something similar and finding that the brackets are tough to get, I ended up with it and I'm very impressed with it.
