After a comment from Jen, one of DoityourselfRV.com’s loyal readers, I decided to prepare a follow up or a sequel if you will of the RV Table / Desk. This time I wanted to look at it from the perspective of building it custom with your own two hands (or a loving friend’s hands). Our friend Jen was looking for something that had less obstruction below the table so it could be used as a fold down table next to her couch so she could have a workstation. I hadn’t considered that application so I want to thank Jen for the idea and want to show our readers a quick tutorial from Ana-White.com that will show you how simple this project can be. Keep in mind this tutorial is for making a child art center but the size and simplicity are a perfect application for an RV. I even think the chalkboard feature is ingenious and useful for an RV’er!
According to Ana-White.com this do it yourself RV Table / Desk will require the following:
- 1 – piece 3/4″ plywood 16″ x 24″
- 1 – 1×4 @ 10 feet long
- 1 set hinge supports
- 1 set basic hinges
- 3 D ring hangers
- Chalkboard paint (optional)
- Moulding or trim (optional)
- 2 inch screws
- 2 inch finish nails
- wood glue
- wood filler
- 120 grit sandpaper
- paint brush
- measuring tape
- safety glasses
- hearing protection
- circular saw
- countersink drill bit
