Originally I was not going to have a table in my van conversion due to the lack of room, but for the van to be registered as a motor camper on my V5 document a table is one of the requirements needed.
Now that I had built myself a table I am glad I’ve got one now, It even dissembles and tucks out of the way when not in use as well.
I purchased an island table leg set off the internet for £22. All I had to do was make the top part of the table.
1. Leg mount base
First, i drilled a hole in the floor for the leg base and then screwed to the floor.
2. Making the table
The table is made out of some left over wood. I decided to make the table square with round corners. It can be made into any shape really but I decided with a square.
I cut some wood into 5 same size lengths.
Made a round shape on the 4 corners using masking tape roll.
Before staining the table I sanded it all over to a smooth finish.
Once the stain dried I then screwed the leg table mount in the centre of the underneath side of the table.
When the table is not in use, it dissembles and then is stored on the side of my cupboard next to the sliding door.
I screwed a strip of wood to the side of the cupboard for the table to rest on and then a twisty hook made out of wood to keep the table in place.
The leg is also stored next to the table, I used a couple of U-clamps to hold it in place.
