Fold Out Chalkboard Table

Save space in your home by building your own fold out chalkboard table! Perfect for a small home, studio office, or apartment.  The PDF plans include a material cut list, a list of necessary tools & hardware, assembly directions, and dimensions. The overall dimensions of the folding chalkboard table are 42”W x 36”L x 36”H.

Helpful tips: Always work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always pre-drill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
