Jason’s fold-out table


Jason was one of my students in the cardboard furniture class that I teach at 3rdWard NY. For his project he found an old World War II design of a fold-out table. He then tweaked and modified it (including building several prototypes) until he was satisfied with the end result. Jason printed out his drawing, glued it onto a 1/4” cardboard sheet, and continued by cutting and folding the facets. As you can see the table is very sturdy. It can fold up or down quickly and reliably, and will surely serve Jason and his family for years to come.
