Just the thing where living quarters are compact, this space-saving dinette table has a built-in chest of drawers, accessible from either end. in which linens and tableware can be kept handy. Folded, it forms a slender cabinet that can be set out of the way.
When open, you have a full-size table accommodating six persons. By providing a cupboard under the drawers, a storage space can be had which will accommodate four folding card-table chairs. Construction is not difﬁcult, and where plywood is not available, glued-up panels of solid stock can be substituted

Building a scrolled bookshelf with drawers is a lot easier than building a tear drop camper like the one I posted last Sunday, but it takes some practice as well. But I’m sure you will fix it.

Kettles and other seldom-used utensils stored on high cupboard shelves are reached easily with this double-duty stool, which opens up into a sturdy 40-in. step-ladder. Except for the seat, plywood may be used entirely or combined with solid stock. Run the grooves for the treads in the side panels ﬁrst, then tack both together and saw out the section that swings up on top of the seat. Glue and screw the treads in place and hinge the two-part seat to bring both sections ﬂush when folded. Rubber-headed tacks will keep the stool from slipping on waxed ﬂoors.
