TRUNK-GROUNDThe need to eat regularly is a normal human need. And if at home and at work, and even more so at the organized holiday food established, travel (whether by foot, Bicycle or car) with this, the majority of people usually have problems. To do this, in addition to products to bring crockery, Cutlery, utensils fire pit, skewers, etc., which need to pack something, something to carry (or carry).


And it is desirable that it was all in one place – that is, “at hand” to in case of need – not to rummage through all the Luggage to find the right.

The dimensions of the suitcase in the stowed position: 650x500x150 mm. the Pattern parts are bonded a 4-mm rivets and reinforced at the corners by aluminum angles No. 15. The principle of building and design, I hope is clear from the sketches. Folding legs made of thin-walled steel tubes. The top cover has hinged wings that increase the useful area of the countertop. Although the main tabletop they form a not perfect plane, and slightly protrude above it, but it does not interfere with the meal. And not to accidentally cut himself on wings, their edges seamed.
