The New Table

BobbyB has been offering to help me build a table for some time now, so last week he came over and brought his tools, his plans, his expertise and I supplied a sense of humor and lunch. I can't thank him enough. Also, Tinman came over and brought his router and sander and a LOT more expertise to help us finish up. Once again, I supplied a sense of humor and lunch. I'm telling you, it couldn't have come out any better. It's almost 7' long, 36" high and 35" deep. You'll notice that I opted out of having holes cut because I want to be able to move them in and out for tailgating and hurricane purposes. I figured that the least used part of the table was that part directly behind the egg, so instead of a hole, we made a slot so that I don't have to pick them up so high to get them in and out. The shelves are 1.5"X5" inch tongue and groove decking. The front three legs are 4"X4" and I tied the back into the existing legs that support the roof of my cook shack, 6"X6" posts. I haven't gotten it stained or finished yet, but I'll post pics of the finished table as soon as I do.
Many thanks to Bobby B and Tin Man. Couldn't have done it without you!

    that is a fine looking table. i must get my garage cleaned out so i can build me one...... rather, do what you did and find someone who knows what's up.

    that is a great idea about the slot. I noticed you through a screw into the one by on top that don"'t have support under it so they don't go wonderin later on. Very nice.

    Man that is choice!! Beautimus job guys! You may want to add a chain on the back or add a removable board. It's amazing what can be done with beer driven eggers!Haha.
  • Hmm..... chain across the back. Heck, that's not a bad idea at all!

    I like how you tied the table into your posts, and the slots in the back. Good ideas.
