Tip and Turn Table

To mount the table top to the birdcage, I used a pair of 2" no-mortise hinges (#28688) that were ordered from Rockler. The spring-loaded table catch from Horton Brasses (H-43) holds the top down when the table is in use but then allows you to quickly release it and tip it up for easy storage. The small spindles for the birdcage mechanism can be purchased from Rockler (#21360).

You’ll need a couple more items. The mahogany crotch veneer I applied to the top of the table came from Certainly Wood. Their number is listed at right. And finally, I used a classical bead and cove bit from Amana (#54108) to make the molding for the top.
