When I set out for college, my dad gave me two books: Nomadic Furniture
and Nomadic Furniture 2
. These books by James Hennessey and Victor Papanek contain tons of great projects and commercial products that were available in the early '70s.
Projects from those books and several Instructables (like the Nomad Desk
) inspired me to make a new desk that easily folds and collapses for flat travel.
All materials were acquired for roughly $100 from a local hardware store, making this an effectively inexpensive project
