In some homes, limited space is one of the key design elements! If you hope to have a tiny home (or just live in NYC), using your space well is what separates the clean from the cluttered. The tension of use and space is an ongoing struggle that takes some creative solutions!
One man may have just helped out in the struggle for a clutter-free space.
I have a passion to teach and share. When YouTube came around I thought this would be a great platform to build a community and share my knowledge. – Izzy Swan
Izzy Swan is a woodworking genius! He describes himself on his Instagram as a “Maker, Inventor, Youtuber, Amateur Engineer, Artist,” so pretty much everything! He loves to teach people how to build things that can help them out.
Of all his inventions, this one may be the most practical.
Known as the Eizzy Folding Table, his wooden contraption can do some incredible things. Essentially, it’s a table and chair set that can squeeze into a box that’s roughly 2ft x 2ft x 4 ft. You almost have to see it to believe it.
Izzy gives us a demonstration video that shows the setup.
Pulling the top off the rectangle, he reveals the base of the entire rig. Izzy places it on the ground and we get a closer look at it. There is a hand-punch for him to grab it and the rest of the holes are a part of the locking system that he built into it.
He then places the rest of the rectangular cube on the base with a satisfying click.
Like all good things, this one clicks when it’s in place! Once the top is placed on the base, he grabs two of the circles (soon to become seats) and pulls down. The four circles fall outward and reveal the chairs and top of the table.
The only thing left to do is flatten out the surface of the table.
Izzy lays out the rest of the table with a few deft motions, revealing the finished product. In less than 20 seconds, Izzy turned a wood box into a working table with a round top and four seats that can support adults!
The uses for this device are endless!
We see a real-life application of the table a few moments later. Izzy brings out the box and places it on the grass in his yard. Calling his friends over, Izzy and two others sit on the chairs and test how solid it is. To make things even more impressive, the friends helping Izzy aren’t little, either! Instead of using kids to “show off” how the table works, he used full-grown men, further proving just how secure the set-up is.
The best part? He provides the design for you to make at home!
True to his Insta bio, he gives you the chance to build the table yourself. In the video’s bio he provides a link if you want to get a bit crafty and make it for yourself! Also, make sure you keep up with him on Instagram for all his crazy inventions!
