Plans for one so you can make it or the actual item already made?

A few more here.
Need a new teak table for your boat, Call Goodale Marine today

Fairly straightforward to build if you're handy with woodworking. Two problems with fold-up tables: The hinges are more visible than fold down tables; and there is a lot of stress on the hinges.

Stainless steel piano hinges are probably the strongest for the money, but still - if they get someones weight on them the screws will pull out of the wood. It might be worth considering a folding support bracket underneath as well to give extra strength. At least you arent banging your knees like with the fold down type.

Another option if you have the storage space; a second smaller table, and swap them out as required.
I'm debating the same thing.

Can you turn it upside down with any degree of success?

If you use barrel hinges, they are totally invisible when the leaves are folded out and quite small in appearance, showing only on the ends, when the table is folded to 1/2 size. I was unable to find barrel hinges small enough and still stout enough to redo my table with granite, but if you use plywood of 3/4 inch thickness, dressing the ends with teak strips, you will be fine. Mine has slide out supports that are also completely invisible when deployed, and discrete when stowed.

Our table which is the original from the factory came with a piano hinge and a screw in leg. The picture shows the table folded in half with the leg still screwed in. There are clips on one wall to hold the leg when not used. Not sure if this is what you are looking to do, just another option.

Here are a couple of pics of the table in my Monk 36. I'm sure I have one of it open if I find it I'll add or post separately.
Any questions let me know

I have that same table, but mine folds under and doesn't have those pull out supports.
