Our thrift store furniture mash-up was a success and with the bottom half of our phonebooth-workstation figured out we need to prototype and build the fold-down table with legs that also doubles up as the face of our phone booth-workstation.
We know the height of the dresser plus school desk legs will be 36″ so that gives us the height of the leg panel. Since the dresser also has a fixed width we have all the numbers we need to start building the leg panel. Then we can work backwards to build the table top portion.
The hardest part will be figuring out how all this will hinge together so both panels fold exactly upright to form the face of our hutch and also be flush with the dresser piece below. Then we’ll tackle a solution so the legs lock in place once folded down.
What hinge contraption will we come up with to get this to work?
