I had the idea to make a collapsible set about 4 years ago while living in the dorms where space is at a premium.  This is my second (lighter, thinner, just as sturdy) set, as the first was destroyed by rain and drunkenness last summer (I had mistakenly lent them to a less than responsible friend for a weekend).  They collapse to just over 2" thick when stacked.  Everything was hand painted by my girlfriend and I.  The boards are 1/2" MDF and the braces are 1/2" Birch Plywood.  I also used 36" continuous (piano) hinges. Weighing in at 18 pounds each, they also can support my 187 pound body.

The Cubs one Is awesome . If you have Time you should do a step by step on the process . Not the actually painting just the Publisher and printing it up part and the board sketching

The hand painting is pretty slick. You ought to include some photos of that process... it would be interesting to see.

I was worried about the boards warping with this design until I read that they were MDF and not the typical plywood. Those should hold up very well. Nicely done!

I totally would have, but I didn't have access to a camera until it was done. Plus I didn't discover this website until after it was painted as well. I did it by first creating a design in Microsoft Publisher, and made a 4 by 16 square grid over it. I made a to-scale grid on the boards which I had already primed and traced the design. (Actually, my girlfriend did the transferring) Then we painted everything in with Rustoleum which is oil-based so the water wouldn't be able to be soaked up by the sponge that is MDF.
