Title: Stowable reading tray

Abstract: A wall-mounted stowable reading tray assembly (10) suitable for placement in a bathroom or any other confined space. The tray assembly (10) has a tray (12) configured to require minimal room and wall space when stowed, yet provides ample surface area for supporting reading materials when deployed. The tray assembly (10) is legless, and therefore the tray (12) is cantilevered from its mounting wall when deployed. The tray (12) is stowed within a mounting frame (14) attached to the mounting wall, and recessed into the wall if so desired. The tray assembly (10) preferably employs means (38) for supporting the tray (12) when deployed, and which is also stowed with the tray (12). The tray (12) includes an extension (44) that can be stowed within the tray (12) when not needed. Consequently, the extension (44) does not occupy any additional room or wall space when the tray (12) is stowed.
