Saturday, I picked up me new mini, posted pix of the "final configuration" (perched precariously on a kneewall), & the replies containing multiple references to "Humpty Dumpty" haunted me, sos I built the little guy his own crib (with the giant wheels its more like a pack-and-go playpen):

    The little guy looks great sitting on his new throne!
    He's an upstart....already sitting taller than King Large, Eggdome leader of the Knights of the Rectangular Table.


    All hail Mini, the Duke of Steak in Eggland, the left hand of King Large and admired suitor of Lady Lump.

    Nice work Zippylip.
  • nice job , nice design ,,, where do you find the time???
    seems to me from dougs post you are much better at carpentry than packing boxes.. :laugh:

    MONDAY night: Home Depot for the the stuff, layed out the top, sunk in the paver.
    TUESDAY night: Attached the legs & wheels, & fought off the bee from hell.
    WEDNESDAY morning: I affixed the lower shelf.
    WEDNESDAY night: Attached the trim, photo shoot.

    Regarding the packing job, that's doug's handywork, the box was so ugly I felt compelled to mail it back to him ;)

    I still have no explanation as to what that thing was, the consensus was a cicada killer, but the picture on the link shows them there killers as black, & I've seen them in action, freak'n scary. This thing was yellow, like a Gilligan's Island honey bee. Of course I was still running away from it like a little girl through this maze of crap:

  • Any chance that bee was a European Hornet? It would have been attracted to the lights and had a loud buzz.

    Like the table, what type of wood did you use?

    Thanks

    I read the link & I think that is it, it says they are from 1-1.4 inches, this thing was a little over an inch (dead & slightly dried out, looked much more plump in flight).

    The table is Cedar, little more expensive than pine but nicer looking
