I finally finished the support for the glass table top. The table was pretty sturdy, but when we would lean against the side of the glass top, it would tip.
I would have liked to build a 3 pronged support to match the 3 sides of the base. But I’m not skilled enough with woodwork to manage that. So I made a simple cross piece that is screwed into the round metal piece below.
It works! The table top doesn’t tip even if I lean against it.
I will keep my eyes out for a metal 3 pronged support to replace it with someday, but for now, this will do.
I also got the stove top repainted. I used Rustoleum Appliance Epoxy paint. I prefer working with regular Rustoleum because the epoxy is thicker and a little harder for me to get uniformly smooth. But at least it looks clean and fresh now.
My FireDancer propane campfire arrived yesterday. I haven’t lit it yet, but I really like the look and feel. It’s sturdy and feels like a quality product.
My only beef with it is that the photos showed the ceramic logs extending to the metal edge of the unit. The logs that I received, however, look like they were made for a smaller unit, and are 1″ short of the sides all the way around.
I have written to the company I bought it from to see if I was inadvertently shipped the wrong size logs.
Finally, I received my patio mat today. I really like it! It’s acrylic and is definitely not something you would want in your house. But to put in mud or sand in front of the Casita’s door, I think it will be perfect. It looks like it will just hose clean when it’s time to pack up and go.
