Can youse guys steer me in the direction of a good set of plans for building a folding camp table, not necessarily period correct for the 18th century, but something a little crude I can make out of pine? Any links would be appreciated!

Here is one that you could adjust to be more stable on the ground instead of a floor in a dwelling. Would make for a decent small desk
Small Folding Table

Here is a video on making a small, "folding table." It's actually what a lot of us use for folding stools, though when you're like me a built like Santa 🎅, you want to use some hardwood to support the weight. You can scale this UP and have a folding table. I know as I've done both, made the stools and the tables. ;)
Folding Wood Table Video

Here is a very stable "dinner table" design. Drawback: It does not collapse much. (You could likely come up with a method to put a hinge in the middle.) Advantage: Very sturdy (might be less weight capacity if you made it fold in the middle)

I have a great idea for a table for you. I myself use the Coleman aluminum folding table on my camping trip, I don't think you will have any trouble making it. But you can make it out of pine. I like it very much:).

Haunt the antique and junk shops, look for a portable folding sewing table, they are light,sturdy and well made. Been using one for years. Sand off the measuring marks on the top re-finish fits right in.
