Folding Salon Table - Pics ?

I know I've seen this somewhere on CF, but blast if I can find it...

I want to build a table that folds down from the bulkhead in the salon I remember seeing at least one picture in the forum of a design that actually incorporated dish/cutlery/bottle storage in the table frame.

Essentially, it was a cabinet, but the front of the cabinet hinged down and then folded out, becoming the salon table. Does that make sense?

Does anyone have any pics of similar designs (I'm open to ideas)...

... or could someone with superior searching skills point me to the right thread?
Many thanks!

I bought one of the cockpit tables with the wings that fold out, then I installed it in the salon with quick release hinges... spring loaded hinge pins. So my table does double duty in the cockpit or the salon. And no need to worry about my pretty varnish having to deal with exposure.

Not what you were asking, but I'm proud of it.
