Show me your cockpit table

My boat has a tiller so there isn't a pedestal for hanging a table on. I'm looking for ideas on making a cockpit table that can be easily stored away or set up for snacks. Got any pictures? Post them please.

I am looking for a table with drop down leaves. I have searched high & low for something to buy (to suit old boat decor & design) in timber, and have looked for plans to build one, but not having much success. anyone outthere who has any plans or pictures that I can work from? The table will be set uop between bunks when in use.

I don't have any pics, but try this. It worked on my last boat.
Fold tiller up out of the way.Get table size. Three folding legs under the table, two at the back, one at the front.
the rear folding legs fit into u shaped brackets which are bolted to the rear of the cockpit. so, to put up the table, unfold the rear legs, slide them into the brackets, ( 2 per leg, one high up, and one down low,mounted on the rear cockpit wall).
the front leg( which is mounted under the table in the middle) now unfolds and drops into a hole where the pin in the leg fits.

so, two legs at the back held in the brackets, one leg at the front.

everything folds up and gets stored under the v berth

I hope you get the idea....

I hope you get the idea

I get a good visual from your decription. My boat has a solid smoked plexiglass companionway door that slides into place. I've been thinking I might be able to use it as a table top. Still thinking...

I've got an 2-3 in dia. aluminium tube and a deck/table fitting at a marine consignment place that fits the tube. I got poly board at a plastics place. The tube fits into the deck fitting and the table onto that. Works well and didn't cost that much. I've also seen tables hung from the boom.
