Steel pop-up table mechanism

At home I have a coffee table sitting in front of our couch and our TV. Also, we have a DVR. These two ingredients result in a fair amount of dinners on said coffee table. It would be nice to have them table height. So, its time to make the coffee table a pop-up type.

Google on pop-up table mechanisms cost about $160...eeek.

Time to fab one up with my homebuilt arc welder.

1/16" 1" squre steel tubing and 1/8" steel flats make up the frame. The rotate points are 1/4" bolts.

Only two inches, high, good enough to fit my table with little modification!

Thanks for showing this. I used your basic design to build a pop up table for myself. Hope you don't mind being copied.
