I posted a thread over in the workshop section asking some tips on building a suitcase table. Here is the thread:

Very nice and professional looking. What does it end up weighing if I may ask?

I'd have to empty it out and throw it on a scale. I'll eventually get around to it and let you know. I believe its just a bit heavier than the large lefler table without props.

Yes, it would be good to know the weight too.

Great job! Looks very professional and will hopefully give you many years of use.

How does the top stay up when you raise it after opening?

Hi Mark...the top stays open like the Lefler or most all suitcase tables. Two small flat clips pivot outward to stop the hood from falling down. When you are ready to fold up the table, you simply pivot the clips inward and the hood folds down.

Very well made. You have a talent. I bet that it did not cost $395.

This is a excellent job, you know what you are doing. I like the fact you did not use the classic hole for the handle.

I would like to suggest you prime the inside or cover with felt. Not having it painted will invite warping of the wood doors and top. Some kind of sealer, primer will keep your table for many years.

Great Job!
