Is there any warranty on the large bge table that is sold by the company?

Mine is beginning to lean to the left.

    one word...brace! The design has inherent weaknesses and I seriously doubt there is any warranty at all! You can shore it up using a diagonal brace on the back running from a top corner to a bottom corner.

  • Yep, a 2 x 4 running across the back of it diagonally will shore it up . . . . or in my case it was over kill with a 2 x 10.

    RRP is correct in the design flaw.

    If you don't want to run a brace all the way across the back you can use corner braces in the rear of the table at the joints of the top and bottom shelf. Four braces in all and that will square it up and prevent the tilt or lean from happening.

    I was willing to let that one go, Mark, but as I recall I said something about you ought to see the wren house Mark built with the rest of that 2 x 10!

    Anyone have a photo of this to help a carpentry challenged individual construct said bracing?

  • you can manage just fine with two smaller pieces of strapping in an 'X' formation.

    big box stores will have finished (S4S) wood that is maybe 3/4"x1/2" actual size. an 'X' of that will be just as good and a whole lot less visible than 2x4s or anything similar

    some thin cable would also work in an 'x', but I still like Fidels corner blocks as a solution. It would look a little cleaner and 'planned' vs. scabbed'on

    Yea. You can easily cut diagonal section of plywood and it cinches it up nicely.

    Regarding the S4S lumber, why would you want that if it's going on the back of the table where (assuming) no one would see it anyway?

  • they just need to be good and strong since that'd be a 'moment' connection. still a lot of stress if you are moving it around.
    ·
  • just because it would be cleaner. not at all expensive, for the size. never know if the back is visible or not, depending where he keeps it

    Here is one example. See the diagonal bracing that crosses the window. Fashion a similiar piece from one corner of your egg table to the other. Before attaching the last corner, make sure the table legs ar plumb.
