A folding table

The second quick project is a small folding table for Mrs Tinkerers table loom.  Examples of this design are all over the web and I have never really understood how they would go together so I have been wanting to make one for a while.  This example has been adjusted so that the loom sits quite low compared to a normal table height but the dimensions are good for a table 700m high by 800mm wide.  The four longer members are 900mm long with a pivot dowel at the mid pint (450mm) and 30mm from one end.  The shorter four members are 600mm long.  There is only one longer length of dowel and 4 short lengths.
