Mini table - revisited (and lamb chops)

I had built a low table for my mini egg, but after using it a few times, I determined my back was just not up for the bending over required for working at that height. So, having some lumber left over from building the table for my small, I built another table for my mini. This one is 36" wide, 22" deep, and 32" tall, complete with a cup holder. :whistle:


MUCH easier on my back to use! I'll keep the original "mini" mini table (seen to the left of the new one) for travel.

Here's the table for my small, with the egg in place.

The lamb chops that were on the mini, at the time I took the photo:

Those were the BEST lamb chops I'd ever had!

    Alas, I do not drink alcohol, so it would be a waste of a good bottle opener to install one.

    The cupholder is installed at a height that allows for easy access from either a standing or sitting position, if that counts for anything. ;)

    I was actually pleasantly surprised to find them at my local grocery store, and am tempted to go back and get some more, if only to freeze them for later enjoyment.

    Those look fantastic! I received my table for my birthday, and had to put a brace under where the Egg would rest.

    I cut the boards to make that brace 3 times, and it was still a little off. I'm always amazed by folks who can breeze through stuff like this.

    Thank you! It's plain ol' pressure-treated southern yellow pine. I had to sort through a LOT of lumber, to get anything usable.

    Thank you for the compliment! I actually am waiting on a BGE table for my large, that I am getting for my birthday. My guess is I'm going to have to do some reinforcing, myself.
