Hand crafted mini table

edited November -1 in EGG Table Forum
Just finished this beauty and it feels good when I see my tables completed and ready to go. I selected the wood which is quarter sawn white oak and finished with Watco Teak oil. There is a natural beauty in this wood that I truly enjoy. This table is transportable, legs unfold and the table top has brass snap connectors for assembly that takes a few seconds. The base that the mini rests on is made from a pizza stone, not BGE. There is a lot of detail in this design,... its a labor of love.
Here are a few pic's.

    That is more than a table, that is a work of art. Almost hate to see it get used and dirty...almost! I completely agree with the other comments that you could easily sell that. I bet if you go to a local event and people see it they will be asking for one.

    Outstanding workmanship! Quartered White Oak is some of the best, excelent for outdoors also. Being a stairbuilder, I can appreciate the planning and work that went into that fine table.

  • Very nice work indeed. This is worthy of submission to Woodworker magazine if you ask me.

    I must ask though, where did you acquire the sausage handle?

    Thanks for your kind words. :cheer: I'd like to get a website up with pictures someday. Well I'm going to see if I can design and build a table for the Large Egg and bring it down to Eggwegofest (the Illinois eggfest) in September. Stay tuned for that!!!

    Here is the Grand Prize raffle winner of this years Sunshine State Eggfest in Florida. Many tickets were sold and it was a fun event with a lot of excitement. :woohoo:

    Thanks, your comments mean a lot to me.
    Design work is very extensive. Fortunately I have AutoCAD but a lot of concept sketching is done by hand on note pads, the old fashion way. KD joinery is also very time consuming to design and for outdoor furniture there are critical requirements and obstacles to overcome.

    I'm working on a design for the large egg. Stay tuned for a table with 5 legs!
