Folding Dining Table With Chair

If you find that you never fold and stow your folding dining table, but its ability to fold sometimes tipples your puzzle, it may be time to turn it into a more permanent surface. This do-it-yourself project is easy and takes less than an hour to complete. These instructions assume your folding table has a lower lip. If not found in “Tips” for how to change them to your needs.


Set your folding dining table. Put on goggles. Metal drilling can throw sparks and slices. Place an apartment brace in a corner formed by a leg and the table top, so that a screw hole rests against the inside of the table’s underside lip. The other screw should rest against the table legs. The brand through the screw holes with a marker pen. Repeal the brace. Drill through the underside table lip at the position you have marked. Use a drill with the same diameter as your bolts.

Drill through both sides of the table leg at the position you have marked. Use the same drill as the second hole. Move the flat brace and connect it to the fold dining table with screws and nuts. Place the screws so flat head faces outward and the nut faces toward the table. Pull down nuts with wrench or pliers. Repeat step three for eight for the other three legs. If the table does not have a lower side in the lip, use the L braces instead. Attach one end to the table leg and the other to the bottom of the table. Place the upper bolt so the nut points to the floor.
