Folding craft table is a great place to keep frequently used books as reference books that do not have to be hidden on a shelf. The most common style for a library table is an assignment table: a simple design consisting of a top, four legs, a lower shelf, upper and lower skirt board and six or eight sided slats. These tables can be built in any size that suits you, but they are usually around 28 inches tall with 24 inches wide and 30 inches tall

Joint and plan all your work to make all faces flat and straight. This can be done with a handheld razor or a rigid rig and planer. Cut skirt boards (the boards that hold tops the legs to the bottom of the top panel) with the folding craft table looked at the desired width and length. Take the saw marks with the hand planet. Cut wood to create legs, lower skirt boards (those that will support the lower shelf) and the slats. Take the saw marks with the hand planet.
Glue Panels for Top and Shelf
Lay all the cards out to make a large panel that will make the upper and lower shelves. Make sure their pages are straight or you will not get good looking. Apply glue on the sides of boards and pinch them, put the clips not more than 12 inches apart. Allow it to dry for at least an hour. When the panel is dry, remove it from the clips and, with a chisel or hand plane, remove excess glue that has been pushed out of the joints. Cut the top and shelf to the desired dimensions folding craft table with the table seen.
Cut drops (forecasting) on the ends of skirt boards and pinholes (cavities) at the tips of the legs and 5 or 6 inches above the bottom of the legs where the lower skirt boards go. You also need to drop on the ends of the slats, in the bottom of the upper skirt aboard and the top of the lower skirt on board. Glue together the rods, upper and lower skirt boards and legs for the left side and the right side. After these parishes are dry, they can be connected through gluing in the front and rear skirt boards. Finally, the lower shelf can be placed between the two lower skirt boards and screwed there by putting two screws through the cut boards and at the ends of the shelf. The top is attached to the table by pushing screws up through the bottom of the upper skirt boards.
Tips and warnings
Be sure to remove any excess glue from the joints, or it will appear as white marks around the joints when the table is colored. Always be careful with power tools. Do not hurry.
