That's a great idea. Now, lets see if you can resist the urge to start accumulating "things" on that open table?
Did you get the pie as well as the table... I hope so!
Rick, I know that there will be big temptation to pile stuff on the table, but it has to be in the raised position for access to some things, so that should help to keep me from doing so. Or, at least, it will mean that I have to remove the accumulated pile from time to time.
My sister-in-law, Gail, made that pie dish about 30 years ago and it has been in our kitchens (in three countries and 5 houses) ever since. It is now exactly where you see it in the photo, except there is a new table-top underneath it.
We discovered today that the table is great for children's projects. Ethan (my 5.5 year old grandson) spent most of this morning with me in the shop. He made a boat, a dock for the boat, and a wooden valentine "card" and he did all of the planning, assembly and painting at the table. Here he is painting the boat:
