‘Tis the season for gathering around the table. But if you’re like me, you don’t have a table big enough to accommodate more than two or four people—let alone the space to keep such a table year-round. Luckily there’s a DIY solution: sawhorse tables, assembled from goods from the hardware or lumber store, that can easily flat-pack when not in use. Come time for a celebration, assemble one stand-alone table for an intimate dinner party, or create a long, grand table. Here are 7 favorites from the archives.
