Build a folding craft table or foldable desk with storage! Inspired by the IKEA Norden gateleg table, this folding desk is a great option for a small craft space or home office. Better yet, it can be built using only scrap wood!

Folding Craft Table with Storage Shelves

Inspired by the IKEA Norden gateleg table design, this folding craft table has 2 folding gateleg table sections, with a center fixed section that features 2 easy-slide storage shelves.

The gateleg desk overall dimensions are: 66 1/4” W x 26 1/2” D x 29 1/2” H

I made this foldable craft table from scrap wood only, all I spent on this project was $5.00 for the hinges. Everything else I had already, or received for free.
