collapsible 4' x 8' table?

Merry Christmas to all. I finally got rid of my big sheet of plywood and
its cumbersome support structure that I used for several years to set up
the holiday layout. It just ate up too much storage space in my tiny
house. Now I need something else. I'm thinking about making a
lightweight framework of 1" x 2" lumber with routed ledges to support
eight small pieces of plywood, each slightly smaller than 2' x 2'. Some
sort of easy to assemble and break down system to fasten the legs and
horizontals together, and then the little squares of ply just drop in.
The legs will be short, maybe sixteen inches or so. I just run a couple
of ovals for my old lionels, nothing fancy, around the christmas tree.
So has anyone made anything like this, or is something like this
commercially available?
Thanks for any help or ideas...

That is basic modular railroading. You're just making smaller modules than most but the process is still the same.
