As I was mocking-up the height for a circular side table, with some cheap clamps and a MDF disk, I suddenly realized that I liked the mockup better than the original design. So now it sits in the “meditation” corner of my shop’s deck for most of the year.

Is that $10 for the table, allowing $4 for the MDF?

The clamps were a gift, and the top is a sink cutout, but the plans were $127.93 … plus shipping and handling.

A free standing clamp rack + if you flip it over and put another disc on top, you can double the capacity, while making it do double duty as a bird cage

If i did that, the clamps would slowly move to other corners of the world, never to be found again.

What are you going to do if you need one of those clamps. It’s a beautiful table in it’s own kind if way.
