Temporary stand/nest/table

I'm heading over to pick up my egg tomorrow.  I plan to build my own table. I'm a hobby woodworker, so I can't not build one!  My question is this; what can I use temporarily in the time until my table is done?  I don't really want to buy (see: pay for) the nest if it's going to be essentially a temporary solution. 

I suppose I could just set it on the deck (on a stone), but that doesn't give me a very good working height.

Any tips?


  • Here's a few suggestions:

    BTW, my "temporary" table in the pic I posted has been "temporary" for about 2 years ;-)
    Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee

    Lol, hey that was my first post here when i was in a very similar situation.

    FWIW, I built my temporary based on caz's Pic. Except I used 3 cinder blocks, 1 level, and a 2' x 2' x 2" paver.
    I wanted it lower because of my son and the dog, but I do wish it was a bit higher
