    I use hardware similar to those leg braces all the time, but in more of a ladder configuration so as long as both sides match the exact angle doesn’t matter. Seems to me all you would have to do is figure out about where the hardware needs to be on the legs, mark both of them identically, attach the hardware, put the legs in the open position and then screws the braces to the table, regardless of whether they were in exact identical locations relative to anything else.

    I was thinking “murphy bed” also.

    The top would be too light for a workshop, at least for my workshop. I’d have the thing torn up in a week.

    Very nice…
    So first : ROBOTRON!!!! I could have had a car so much sooner if I didn’t play so much.
    Could the clearance with the leg locking things be due to them being upside down or inside out? Looked like one of the lengths might have been shorter or have it fold away from the hinge.

    Thanks for all the projects.

    As an alternative to those locking hinges, I wonder how well some simple straps would work. Would be less expensive, easier to install, and quicker to use. If concerned about the legs retracting back in by accident, maybe a door hinge attached to the leg or a hole in the leg to slide a dowel or screw in & out will suffice – just enough of something to act as a wedge.

    Three that may be a bit obscure were my favorites:

    Moon Patrol

    I also loved the electro-mechanical era of Pinball.
    Bally machines mostly.
    Lost World
    Silverball Mania

    If someone is doing a similar setup to what you did with this room, but wall space is at a premium, the table could be attached to the bottom of the Murphy bed. 🙂 This would require putting a latch on the Murphy bed probably a stronger latch on the table than in the original build, since it would be under the bed when the bed is down.

    I would like to know where you got the stencils you used on the front of your doors?

      Stencils can be found at any craft store. However, your chiices are limited. I prefer going to a fabric store and chosing the lace i desire there. Simply spray a temporary adhesive to one side then let it set for abot 30 sec then place on whatever. Make sure all wrinkles are flattened out and it is pressed down firmly or the paint will bleed. After painting wait a few minutes to let the paint set up. Then remove. To get a specific shape simply tape it off in the desired shape before painting. Goodluck.

    Could you tell me where you purchased the leg braces ?

    I’ve been trying to find similar but I’ve come up with either too small or shaped for
    blanket type boxes.

    What a great space saving idea! On a smaller scale it would be perfect for kids. I am sharing this on Pinterest.

    I love and have used this bracket from Rockler several times. Seems like it would work in this application.

    Where did you get the table leg brackets. I cannot find scissor-like hinge anywhere.

    I loved “Ready Player One,” and listened to it on Audible.com!!! As a child of the 80’s I loved the references to 80’s culture. And because it was marketed for young adults, it was safe to listen to with my 11-yr-old son.

    Not only do I need a table like this for crafts and puzzling, but I need one for our ironing board. It’s an eyesore where it is now. Thanks for everything! Looking forward to more!
