My finished flip top console table

What a fantastic fun project. I spent more time on the finish than I did building this piece. I used outdoor rail posts for my legs because it's all I could find. These rails were larger than the 2x2 required so the back top board had to be a 1x6 to accommodate for this size leg. Besides the narrow hinges I also used some supports under the top so the top would stay up when opened. I didn't want any tiny fingers getting smashed.
I am thinking of doing this one again but altering it to be a sewing machine table. I'll post a picture if I am successful.
Thank so much for the fun project.
