This is my version of the craft table that my daughter pinned from Inspiration file: Built-in Craft Table via Bubblewrapp’d for me to build her. Some things are a little different but I built it to work in her house.
This is with it opened from the front.
This is a side view when opened.
This is with it closed and locked.
Front view closed.
This is the side view closed.

    could you give detailed instructions? My husband wants to make one for our daughter's laundry room! Needs dimensions.....

    Could this also be an ironing table? I would have to put some type of protective padding over the wood but I think it would be worth it . What do you think?

    Wall box: Top and bottom pieces- 36" Sides- 35 1/4" x 5 1/2" wide (1 x 6) Table: 34 1/4" w x 35" l Exterior frame: Top and bottom pieces- 36" x 2 1/4" (long point to long point) sides- 36 3/4" x2 1/4" w (long point to long point). Rip a 1 x 4 to get these pieces. Legs/center frame: Top and bottom pieces 31 1/4" x 3 1/2" ({2}1 x 4's) sides- 24 1/4" x 3 1/2" ({2}1 x 4's) leg frame trim: Top and bottom- 31 1/4"(long point to long point) x 1 1/4" wide (1x4) sides- 31 1/4" (long point to long point) x 1 1/4" wide (1 x 4) **For these pieces, use the drop offs from the exterior frame cuts. Shelves: Sides- 35 1/4" l x 2 3/4" w (x 2) Shelves 32 7/8" x 2 3/4" w ( x 4) Space shelves according to your needs. For the exact spacing on my table, from the top of the shelf sides, measure down 5" to the top of the first shelf, then 10 3/4" to the top of the next shelf, and then 16 1/2" to the top of the next shelf, and then 25" to the top of the last shelf. Dowels- 34" x 3/8" (x 4) *From top of shelves measure up 1 3/8" to the center, and back 1/4" to the center. *Last shelf, measure up 2 3/8" to the center, and 1/4" back to the center. *For the lock use a standard window lock. This will mount on the top and hold the table closed. I added a Bullitt catch to the leg frame at the bottom to make sure the leg closed when it was stored.

    A good idea about making a craft table. I recently made one for myself with the help of a very beginner-friendly wood lathe.
