Very nice. I've been wanting to build something like it for a long time.
So is the bottom actually smaller than the top? Kinda looks that way in the picture.
Also, do you have problems with it tipping over backwards (in the picture, towards the camera) in use? I've puzzled over that in my own half-assed designs (perhaps an entire ass would help?)

This is the class project for the class titled - "Jumpstart I" as taught at the Woodworker Academy in Alameda, CA. It's a design developed over time by the Director the Academy - Jerry Konicek.
Here's the URL: http://www.woodworkeracademy.com/newf/Jumpstart/JumpstartI.html

I've seen pictures of these units with granite surface plates stack on top (I think 3 or 4, each weighing 35+ lbs) and it never BROKE. So it's quite strong.
BTW: The class is fantastic, good instruction and a fun project! I was just at the Academy last week and Jerry's got a few of these sofa tables available for sale (I think $50). You can call them at 510-521-1623.

DOH! You got me there; you know those sofa bed thingies, a sofa that folds out to be a bed? Well, let's put it this way, I was not quite expecting the image I saw having clicked on that link! ;O)
It was curiosity about how on earth they'd get a sofa to fold out of a table which drew me to click on it! ;O)

Tell me, do you ever get any visitors who aren't afraid to sit down?
