[QUOTE=BAH;6458568]Discovered another use today - Picnic table!

Thanks for the 'graph.

My husband and I were trying to come up with a design for a small, lightweight board (which can be folded up and stored in a freeloader) that we could sit across two snap decks to make a large touring "kitchen bench", but your photo suggests the snap decks will be sufficient by themselves ... ie two smaller kitchen benches, instead of one large one. The board would have had multiple uses though ... wide cargo bench and work table.

Husband plans a Big Dummy, I have to have an LHT with Xtracycle/Free Radical as I'm too small for the BD! Sad but true. I had my heart set on a BD.

Cool photos as always. I'm going to a local bike swap in a couple of weeks to sell some stuff, and I've been day dreaming about a folding table top with some folding legs that would also work as an auxillary kickstand. This lights a fire under my butt to start making one.

Good minds think alike? I've been mulling over this exact idea myself!!

Cycotourer- I guess it depends on how much you eat!!
