SIDE TABLES AGAIN

Postby bobhenry » Mon Apr 11, 2011 7:50 am

Weather was nice so I decided to get busy on the bat wing tables for the chuck wagon.


Image
while looking for inexpensive side mount hardware I found out 3/4" schedule 40 pvc slides neatly into 1" schedule 80 pvc

Image
Built my tables and attached the modified schedule 80 to the end of the tables. It is necessary to counter sink the screws into the schedule 80 so the 3/4 will be able to slide past.

Image

Image
I traced around 2 small basins to allow the entire tub to be dropped in from the top.
Image

Image

under framing was spaced down for the lip to rest on, It had to be spaced down far enougn to allow the cut out to set flush with the face of the counter

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

attached yet another crutch for a support

Image

leg extended

Image

support can run back to the trailer

Image

no it wasn't real good planning just a good guess. Leg clears basin in place by less than 1/8 "


Image

or support can be used vertical for heavier loads.

Image


Under arm pad was moved to the foot for vertical positioning on soft ground or as an anti slip foot while tailgating on asphalt parking lot

Image

had to see if my table top dutch oven stand would fit !


Image

Used the crutch tip as the recieving socket for the crutch leg. It has a heavy washer inside then screwed thru a angled block into the 2x6 trailer edge.

The 3/4 pvc was drilled thru with a 1/8 drill bit in 3 places the outer hole was then enlarged just enough that a construction screw head could pass thru. This conceals the head and allows the outer schule 80 pipe to slide over.

By adding an 18" section of 3/4 in this same manner these very tables could be used on Chubby and the barn just as easily. Simply toss them in the trailer of choice and head out camping!

I would like to give partial credit to Becca I simply borrowed portions of her basic side table idea and put in my own twists.

Mr Bob, went to the 6 pages, love the design, great eye to see something and see way beyond it original use :thinking: . What fun and satisfaction to redesign totally unrelated "junk" into a very useful gem!
