wall mounted flip up desk


I am home improvement challenged. I would like to try to create two desk areas that can be wall mounted and lay flat against the wall when not in use. Can anyone help me with how I need to plan this out and what I need to mount the work surfaces and what I need to keep them them up and sturdy when in use?

Thanks!!

You can find special collapsing brackets at Rockler or one of the other online woodworking companies. I used them when I built a drafting table. Mine was about 30" deep by 36" wide. I used 3/4" oak plywood for the table.

Hi,
Do a Google search on "gate leg table".
Just use part of one.
You can build it yourself and in no time you'll be DIY proficient.

Cheers
Bill.

Search for every single material that you need to use, before doing what you want for you to produce not a only a good desk but specially a quality desk.

Make sure your desk has (folding) legs of some sort to support the weight.
