This is a fun little build. I saw an image of these somewhere in Facebook land and thought I would try making some. The wood I used was from a pallet. You would be amazed at how much beautiful wood is hidden inside pallets. The build was supposed to be a bunch of mini picnic table condiment holders. I ended up making one condiment holder and four mini picnic tables. Things didn’t go as planned…check out the video. I have a full how to with sketchup diagrams here.

Great project. You’re a lot like me, I screw up a project quite often, and then readjust to finish it out.

Great video and cute project. Something a youngster might like to attempt on a band saw or scroll saw. teach glue-up methods and safety tips. Since you are voicing the errors, did you consider the Ukealle orchestra’s “The good, the bad, and the ugly”? Joking, of course.

You could always glue thin strips, say about 1/4”, on either side of the table tops and then drill your holes. I’m sure having 1/4” on either side of the hole would be plenty strong for this application. In other words, you don’t have to break out your barbie dolls to put them to good use. :-)

super project, super video, what restaurant owner would not want these on EVERY table. I agree, no need for the barbies yet, salt and pepper shakers need a home also. (not to mention the A-1 and Heinz 57 sauce)! really like these.
