It has taken me some time to finally complete this table.I designed it on Google SketchUp. I had to figure out how to use that program first. There are quite a few pictures that were taken during this process, however these are from the completion of the table to the installation of the new nomax gaskets and assembly of the eggs.

    Looks Great. Nice Dimensions.

    Sketch-Up is Awesome. Anyone with a PC should look into it. I used it for my design (couple post back) and it really makes life easier.
  • Nice table - first 8-wheel drive table I have seen :)

    I do seem to go a BIT overboard at times. ;)

  • Very nice work - do you find you're moving this around much after it's built? (are you using the mobility of the wheels?)

    Getting ideas on building my own - trying to figure out how often people will actually move their base once built.
  • thechief96thechief96 Posts: 1,908
    I've moved it a bit a couple of times. The main reason it has wheels is I may not retire in this home (only a couple of years away)so I will need to move it to my new place. Moves pretty easy, even with two eggs (xl and large) plus two 100 lb pavers.

    Looks awesome, love that they're at the same level. Think about adding a shelf to the right side of the large so you can pull things out easier and not have to go around the XL

    Very nice. Also like that they are the same height. Good job.

    What's that big black thing in the front of the last picture?  Must be the shelf where you keep your eggcessories!

    Seriously - that looks great and very welcoming patio to chill out on.  If you got rid of the gasser you could put a couple lounge chairs and a table for some beverages. ;-)

    I can't add an extension since I need to get to my garden and move the lawn mower to the back. I used as much space as I could.

    The gasser is now moved to a small concrete walkway to allow for another table and a couple of teak lounge chairs that someone was discarding. I took them completely apart and reworked them. Pressure washed, sanded, sealed with teak oil and polished up all of the brass. They were sorry when I showed them reconditioned. Told me they paided over $500.00 each.

    Thank you. It took some planning but I got it figured out.

    I hear you, foldable shelf works too I've seen some heavy duty hinges posted here for that.

    Very nice work. I also learned Google sketch up to design mine so I know where you are coming from.

    I haven't used it since so when I need to design something I will have to learn all over again.

    The little lady has learned quite a bit from the old gal. Now they are both teaching the baby (small).
