Etap did a nice job of this on my Etap 26. The Nav table has a socket on the bottom and lifts out. There is a socket molded in the cockpit floor, and leg in the locker. Simple!

I am also looking to build a cockpit table for my 30' sailboat. What I am thinking is a simple mount on the pedestal and hinges on the table. The table will stand with a simple removable post underneath when in position.
I am currently looking for the mount on the pedestal. Edson has a good -expensive- one:
I wonder if I can find the same clamp in nylon?

I was looking for cockpit table HW a few years ago and came across a used Edson table with HW on ebay. It was $125. I figured I could toss the table if I could not refinish and still have the HW at a discount. Turns out the table was new, unfinished with a slight water stain that sanded out.

Tony, Made my own table and did not want to pay the going rate for hardware, after some thought
and several false starts decided that cleanest, fastest
hardware for removeable table was from Edson. Not cheap
at $150. or so 2-3 years ago. But very happy, comes
on/off real fast and easy.
Would love to see some home made mounting systems. Hugo

More information about the table's design would help. Did you want the table to be removable, so you can stow it when it isn't needed. In that case, a piano hinge would be the wrong hinge to use.
There are hinges that allow you to unmount the table without removing any hardware, which might be a good choice in this case, like these:
If you're looking for a locking hinged support arm, then you're probably looking for something like what is found here. This is made of 304SS.
BTW, most of the Edson ones are designed for attaching to a binnacle or steering pedestal so you can have a folding table for the cockpit.

16x30 sounds like a cockpit table to me. Edson sells them but they are not cheap.

|Mirari||My guess is he is looking for the supports to keep the leg from collapsing when folded out, not the hinges. I just made a new table and used piano hinge but Had to make my own locking mechanism to support the leg.|
