New Table finally complete!! (pic heavy)

It was a two week project that was built from a picture I found on the internet. I made it up as I went along so I have to admit there was quite a few times I removed some screws and changed some things to make it how I wanted. Overall it came out pretty good, I haven't done and wood work since highschool shop class yet surprisingly I remembered quite a bit of the "tricks". Letting the tiles set now then to grout them later this week. I made the mistake of using select grade pine which costed me way more than expected. If I was to do it over it would be pressure treated kiln dried....

    Really a good looking project!  Just wondering, what size casters did you use?

  • Little bitty ones haha the wheels are about 1.5-2". I'm never going to move it but if I was frequently I would have put larger ones on. These are rated for enough weight though.
  • First cook on it post table build. Pork tenderloins

    Why did you use those wimpy wheels?  On a rig like that you need 5 inch wheels.  Much more maneuverability and handling with the right wheels. 

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!
  • My first thought was to hide them with a skirt completely but that idea flopped. I may put larger ones on in the future. I doubt I'll be moving the thing for years so I'm not to worried about it.

    Imagine that. Another negative comment from Sam.

    Disregard him @EgginMisfit. He is the resident negative Nancy. Ask him why he made a spider instead of buying one... :)) Your table looks great man, and I hear you on the casters. If not going to move it and they are rated for the weight, the small ones are just fine.

  • Ha thanks @chubbs I didn't take it personally. If someone wabts to criticise then so be it. I love it and having a table compared to the eggmates is 100% better. I can now lift the whole adjustable rig out and have a place to set it
