I made this table to have coffee and serf the web in the mornings while sitting on the deck. I built the top some time prior to the stand in the pitcher the top has weathered while the base / stand was fresh cut lumber, now it has been about 3 months or so and they both match.

I had no idea what the base was going to be i just started making saw dust no sketches no plans just a end height in mind to reach for a comfortable lounging. In my opinion the jury is still out on this one, I’m just not sure I love the stand and the table top together. Guess I should have had a plan.

I think posting things things I don’t necessarily love is equally as important to me as posting the projects that came out wonderful, I feel it will offer a different view point that might trigger a creative process that we can grow from.

If you dont like it tell me where I can come to pick it up because I think its beautifull. I have just the perfect spot for it as well. Nicely done!

Question; does the base post sit loose on the feet?

Tokolosi . . thank you. No the feet are attached to the post via a threaded insert and a couple of screws to hold them secure (I guess you could leave the screws out but than the feet would fall off every time you moved it). you can remove the screws from the feet and the pose along with an additional set that secure the post to the top and break it down and box it up . . .

I thank you for your kind words sir.

I think it’s a very nice table. Some times working with only an idea is better than a drawn plan , leaves a lot of room for expirmentation…...........................Schloemoe

Neat. I was just wondering if it was purposely a ‘drop-in’ design to increase portability or facilitate storage.
