For some time, I have wanted a table to hold charts and guides when I am in the field, particularly at star parties. I saw a design for a construction field table in WOOD a while back, and although I couldn't find it again, I was able to reconstruct it in my mind and came up with what you see below. The construction is entirely dowel and glue, except for some brads holding the front ledger in place. It folds as you see, and only needs a bungee cord around it to make a portable package that can lie in the bed of my pickup when I go places. It's white so people won't bump into it even in very dark fields. Not really pretty, but practical.
