Folding leg hardware

Posted by stevega (My Page) on

I will be making a folding luggage stand like shown in the link below.

What hardware should I use for the swivel joint in the legs? I guess that a screw/lag bolt through the legs and a washer between the legs would work? The washer would prevent the legs from rubbing when folded. Is there a more decorative solution? A brass rod and washer might look nicer.
Thanks for any ideas.
