    You made it by the end of the year!  Lol.  Nice looking table.  What’s the plan for the sink?

    Beautiful. As with others, I’m also curious to know how you’ve got the sink hooked up.

    It's an outdoor bar, not egg table as the title suggests.  Should be OT 😁

    Just barely :becky:

    the table will actually live off to the side of the patio, where the eggs are. I had it stubbed for water when it was built several years ago. Just finished making the drain connection which will empty into a bucket. Mainly need it for hand washing, and washing large pans. 

    Thanks again for help with the granite.

    Either way, 2 years is a lot better than what I have done, and it looks great!

    Nice looking table.

    2 issues I see:
    Those flexible elbows suck. Stuff gets trapped in those corrugated parts and then grows bad stuff and stinks. Change it out for a smooth elbow.
    Second, it looks like you connected the hot line to a cold source (not a big deal) and you left the cold side unconnected (big deal). If someone opens both side of the valve, you will have water running into the sink and down that unused pipe onto the ground. You should either cap that unused cold pipe off or split the water source to go up both pipes of the sink.

    The granite guy was saying things like " well, its probably not going to be very level if you made it" etc. when I went to his shop. He took it back when they came to install the granite :smile: 

     I grew up learning woodworking with hand tools (no power tools) and cutting all joints by hand.  Its been simple stuff for some years though. Have missed it for many many years and keep dreaming of getting back to it.

    Point(s) taken. I wanted the flexible elbow as it takes some pressure off the sink drain when moving the straight vertical pipe to remove/replace the bucket. Sounds good in my head at least.

    The drain install is incomplete until I get the hose bib splitter, to  connect both faucets to the water source. Temporarily dry fit since folks asked about the sink connection.

    Awesome table.  Love it.  Looks to be a great manageable size. 2 questions: 
    1) is that granite on all three levels? 
    2) is that a real bird (a duck maybe?) at the back edge of the pool? I am not talking about the rubber ducky with the cool shades....
