I would apply for that inten job in a minute. I don't think the orange would give me the summer off, to work somewhere else even if it was "job related". This table has sooo many possibilities. I am thinking hinges on the legs to make it portable. Something narrow depth and long to fill with deserts for a party. Thanks Ana.

The idea of being your summer

The idea of being your summer intern is definitely appealing. Unfortunately, I can't do websites (my Wellesley senior excels at that) and I am not a decorator. However, I love to do laundry, can type with one hand on the keyboard and the other wiping running noses or stirring the dinner. I am a retired nursery school teacher so hanging with your First Lady would be a joy for me.

great if it could be stored away

This table reminds me of a table we had when I was a child (I think parents still have in summer house, but I am 10thousand miles away!)

I wonder if any type of hinges could be used to make it suitable for storage when not in use?

Question about Step 2

Ana,
How many inches does each end of the fourth length support taper? I don't see a measurement in the picture for Step 2 other than over all length. (My apologies if I'm simply missing it!)

I LOVE this table.

I have an existing table top that I want to use for this!
