Save space by building your own foldable craft table

DIY Foldable Craft Table

Don’t have the extra space for a dedicated craft area at home? Why let that stop you from being creative and working on awesome projects when you can make your own space-conscious craft station. Build a foldable craft table!

This DIY furniture project has a similar design as that of Ikea’s NORDEN Gateleg Table which has foldable table top and legs. When in use, the craft table provides around 66 x 26 inches of work surface. And when completely folded the unit occupies very little space in fact, about the same as a freestanding shelf.
