Here is my version of the picnic wine table. Made from Camphor Laurel or Silky Oak timber.
I also include a block stand for the table where needed on hard surfaces.

Looking good Larry, should be popular.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

These are cool. Woodworking for Mere Mortals did a similar project last week.

Difference is he put a steel rod in the bottom, so that you can stick the wine holder into the ground.

Maybe more stable on uneven ground?

Nice, I’ve made a few so far. What do you use for the hinge?

The block stand is a great addition, degoose! Very rocky ground in my area makes a ground stake impractical. I see the stand is off center. How difficult was it to find the right spot in the block stand for optimal balancing? The wood used in the tops is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
