The proposed table is equally comfortable in large and in small apartments. It can be used as a coffee or tea. This table is easy to move to the balcony or the lawn at their summer cottage. Design feature in that the carrying table can be easily folded and store when it is not needed, even put into the wardrobe in a flat pack.
The manufacture of such a universal stage is recommended by the Hungarian magazine “Earmaster” in the first place for those in possession of a set of simple tools and machine for grinding notched legs. But the idea applies to convert an existing table.
The legs of the table and carved a leg, if possible, should be of hardwood (e.g. oak). Of course, the processing of such wood is significantly harder than, for example, soft pine, but in this case, the finished product will be much more beautiful and stronger.
The style of the table is determined primarily by the form of carved legs and strong paws. Maximum diameter of the turned legs is 110 mm. Therefore, for the manufacture of table will need a piece of hardwood of not less diameter. To acquire the necessary preparation in the store now is not difficult.
When making on a small bench top table saw may have problems because of the length of the workpieces (610 mm). In this case there are two outputs.

1— top; 2—bracket countertops; 3—lock bracket; 4—support plate; 5—figure stand; 6—feet (3 pieces); 7 — cover of the unit support feet
A simple solution is that the leg can be cut into two parts, each processed separately, and then connect with each other. In this cut it is best to produce at the junction of the two convex surfaces. In this case, after connection of the halves of the legs place cut will be almost invisible. To ensure reliable connections in each of the connected parts is necessary to make holes with a diameter of about 20 mm: the connection is performed using plug-in round thorns and glue.
If the machine design does not allow to use long panels, and requires a large amount simpler to make for this lathe (see Fig.2) where the length of the workpiece can be significantly increased. But keep in mind that the possibility of such lengthening is also limited. For example, at too great length of the workpiece increases the deflection during processing (this becomes especially dangerous when handling long workpieces of small diameter).
The configuration of the legs of the table shown in figure 1. Using the grid pattern should be enlarged to normal size, and then transfer it on a hard cardboard. Cut the template must be mounted on the frame of the machine to the workpiece. When making the legs of the chisel should be moved so that it follows the shape of the pattern as a copying machine.
