In the past when I built a project from plans, those plans either took up valuable benchtop space, or hid tools on the wall. I needed a place to put them where they'd be within easy reach, but out of the way.
Inspired by the slide-away cutting board in my kitchen. I made the hideaway plan table, shown below. Because I left a 3⁄4 " space between the plan table and the benchtop, I can slide the table away, even if plans are attached to it with thumbtacks or push pins.
