Here are some pics/video of my new table. This table is used for practicing my chiropractic techniques on unlucky passer-bys :) More importantly, here is a video of my dog standing off against a groundhog (a first for him). Watch it til the end…the groundhog makes an incredible get-a-way that leaves both of us dumbfounded! Is this the smartest groundhog in the world, leaving his attackers dumbfounded and bewildered? Or is this groundhog a klutz? You decide :)

That was a propitious fall. I think the groundhog was just as surprised as you were. Perhaps he will need a massage on the table after that traumatic injurious fall?? Great time to try out the new table…LOL

Did you have someone upholster the table? Looks sturdy and comfortable.

No I upholstered it as well! For a fold-up table is is surprisingly sturdy. Had my dad on it with no problems this last weekend – he weighs about 250lb

The groundhog definitely needs adjusted after that fall!!

Nice job on the table. The upholstery looks great. Maybe the one and only combo chiropractic office and custom upholstery shop is in your future.

Dang.. hope the pup is up to date with some rabies shots if they’re looking to tangle again.. I have a woodchuck I see through my shop window.. has to be a good 50% bigger than that one there. Not sure if my rottie would be friends with it, run away, or tear it to shreds..

Anyways.. nice table. I’m sure my legs would be hanging off the end

Umm, isn’t it supposed to be cows that you tip? Camera seems to be working good for you, and, great looking table.

Stretch – he’s up to date! it probably looks worse in the video, but things really werent that aggressive. It was mostly just a stand off. I think my dog was more confused than anything because he didnt know what the heck it was. The groundhog wasnt really aggressive, just holding its ground. If things started getting out of hand I would have intervened

Nailbanger – My iphone is working out awesome! the video quality is amazing. its too bad when you upload it to the internet you have to loose some quality.

Doug that is a very nice table. Imagine telling patients that you made it, too!!!!!!

I showed the video to the dog translater and he said the dog was saying get out of our yard and don’t dig any more holes around here!!!

Dak the table turned out great. From looks I’d question the thickness of the legs but it sounds like it holds the weight so all is good. How much does the total thing weigh? Looks to be pretty portable. Good luck with your future patients. Not sure if you watch Simpsons or the episode where Homer uses a metal trash bin for chiropractic work. Just remember Homer Simpsons saying before he aligned their back “One, two, better not sue” lol j/k.

Love the dog vs groundhog video. My dog has had run-ins with gophers but they just run in their hole and are no fun. Never come out like yours. However we do have a shadowbox fence in our backyard that rabbits will squeeze through. Its funny watching our dog, Ninja, chase them back out. You see them sprint across the yard, hear a loud woosh and see some fur left behind in a dust storm as the rabbit squeezes through, and Ninja just remains staring at the fence looking frustrated and usually lets out a snort like “Damn”. Cool videos.

Eric, I havent weighed it, but I would estimate around 40lbs. So not too bad. I think I’m going to put a bigger handle on it though. The one I have is kind of tiny and its hard to get all 4 fingers through it.
