Four-legged collapsible table Answered

I want to make a square table in the style of https://www.instructables.com/id/Flagman-Table/ but with legs like a collapible camping chair. 

Can this be done?
Is it a good idea?
Has any one done something like this before?

Hmm, Camping chair style folding wouldn't be that practical, the table top would be perpendicular to the legs. Instead I'd suggest having hinged legs that fold inwards with a hinged piece in between them that locks, simply using a fence bolt on the side of the hinged piece would probably work well for the locking mechanism.
