Pack-along worksurface

Pack-along worksurface

As a contractor, I grew tired of kneeling on the floor or leaning over the hood of my pickup to review construction drawings. So I built this cheap field table from on-site scraps.

Pocket screws hold the sides and back together. Hinges allow the entire thing to fold flat at the end of the day. Dowels underneath the plywood top drop into holes in the angled top rails to hold the temporary worksurface together.
