Default Plans for sofa C shaped table

I would like to build a table that fits over a sofa. I remember seeing a picture of one and I'm not sure if I have the name right. It would be C shaped and slide over the sofa from the front so that it would be beside a person sitting on the sofa. Same shape as the tables in hospital rooms that roll over the hospital bed to allow the patient to easily access a food tray while in bed. I would like to make one out of wood that would be a piece of furniture.

Do you mean something like this? I made this and another one for my wife when she was bedridden about 17 years ago. The other one went to her close friend whos husband was quite ill.

Herb,

you have given me an idea for some melamine I have lying around. I was going to put a thin edge on it, but now that you have reminded me of these bullnose edgings that work very well and will work better than what I was thinking of.

thanks,
Darryl

Excellent job and idea Herb.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
