I am going to TRY to link this (remember I'm computer illiterate) to the pics that GFW was so kind to set up for us-- ...Alan did want me to say that after I harrassed him so hard about taking a simple design and complicating it almost beyond measure..well, let's just say it took a while (handplaning and handsanding and all that jazz)but the results, though not exactly timely (2 1/2 months later), were well worth it... another pic will follow in a reply...Aren't you proud of the old codger??? Cheers! Elizabeth

    AnE,
    My hat is off to both of you! That is a work of art! I remember something about a duck coming in for a landing??? Am I wrong, or did it just not fit? (only another duck hunter would remember something like that!)[p]My complements also to Gordon for making it possible for you to share the pic's with us. Great job Gordon![p]Dr. Chicken

    AnE, Fantastic work! Joints are nearly invisible and plenty of work space. I need to expand mine more! Thanks for the viewing.

    AnE,[p] U.P.S is on the way, please don't wrap it. They will bring it to me just the way it is. They also tell me i can have here by 10.am tomorrow. Now, if i could ask you to put a
    couple of nice thick steaks on the Egg as well. We should
    have this deal all locked up. Money, what money? Hee Hee
    Great job & great pictures.[p] Earl

    AnE,[p]Day-umn! That's nicer than anything have INSIDE my house. And he made it with hand tools?! Great job! Do tell: What kind of wood is that, and what finish is on it?[p]Brant

    AnE,
    Why don't you just move that inside and use it as a dining room table. There's got to be a way to deal with the smoke. GRR...ATE JOB, work of art.

    Brant,Thanks!! You made Alan's day!! All he has is a small table saw and router...he did have the 3 boards that make up the top and shelf planed at the store so they would fit perfectly..He used the plans on the website, but just kept making the table longer and longer because he couldn't bear to cut the wood up!! It's mahagohy- hondurian, I think- and the wood cost right around $200 here in Memphis (I learned when I went with him to pick it out that I should NEVER walk into a specialty wood store...it's a little like him going to the jewelry store with me...."YOU WANNA SPEND HOW MUCH?????? On WOOD????")It's all doweled and glued, and the only tools he actually had to buy were two pipe clamps and this cute little sander called "the mouse"-worked really well in the corners...he's not a wood working pro--the only other real "furniture" piece he has built a dictionary stand- but he's really good at things like wood duck boxes,crown moldings, fences, dog houses (no he's not in one at the present..least since he finished the table before the relatives come visit for Easter)- Just goes to show that it's a do-able project!! Cheers! Elizabeth

    Dr. Chicken, Well, he decided that he didn't want to mar the tabletop by routing out a spot for the duck cutting board..he wants to leave the option open for another egg....(I wondered how long he'd have to have this thing before he wanted a second..let's see Christmas to April...3 months???)

  • AnEAnE Posts: 26
    Oh, yeah, and don't let the finish fool you- it's a red mahogony gel stain and two coats of exterior grade high gloss urethane....The table is on the edge of the porch, and even though there's a substantial overhang, we figure when the wind starts whipping, the table will get wet....that, or we can hose it off after pulling some of Elder Ward's Awesome pork!!!! I can't wait serve some of THAT to some pals who are members of one of the teams for Memphis in May's World BBQ contest...we're brewing some beer for them to use during the contest...maybe they'll let us in on some sampling???

  • AnEAnE Posts: 26
    MAC, Funny you should say that...When he got through with the first coat of the finish...I thought to myself "this would make a pretty dining room table..and said "Honey.....how much deeper could you make this overhang....." He looked at me like I had asked him to run a marathon, or had grown three heads or something, then he realized I meant on another table...and he wiggled his eyebrows, winked and said "it'll cost you..."...but somehow, I don't think he means I need to write him a check...................................

    Elizabeth,
    I'm smiling ear to ear! It only took me a few days to know I needed a 'companion' Egg! It took me another 3 weeks to convince my wife and talk her into it! Yuk! Yuk![p]Hang in there Alan! You've got the right idea! [p]Again, Fantastic job on the table! I wish I could see it in person! I bet the pic's don't really do it justice![p]Dr.C
