    Default Interesting Project... GDG....

    Recently Mr. Bill Hillman approached me with an Idea of his to make a portable Table that would encase 2 folding camp chairs.
    He thought of the idea, and wanted something like it to use at training days,, or just on Camping trips when Table and chairs were not available.

    This was fun to develop..

    What do you think??

    Really cool!
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    I really like that!! I know it has wheels (which is a great idea) but curious how much it weighs and will you be making some (for purchase) in the future?

    Very cool. The weight was something I thought of too. The wheels are a great idea, but if I'm not around I dont think my wife would be able to get it out of the van (soccer mom).

    Truly beautiful. Like most of my "custom projects", it may be a $300 solution to a $30 problem.

    I think I'd want a box that nice to hold a leather sofa rather than crummy camp chairs. I think you will need to make a bigger table and make some chairs appropriate to the table-

    Dad made a bunch of these one year or, something similar to it.

    Camp boxes were always popular with old timers. We've got a few hand-me-downs in camp. One is a kitchen box with spaces for everything you need. Real plates, knives and silverware along with spices and cooking utensils. Same with lanterns. I got the idea from a friends grandpa's hand-me-down and built a nice box with wainscoting for my lanterns. Has a old rope for the handle. Looks pretty cool. Packed with foam works good.

    Gooser Really great. Portable too. Like the towel rack. And the colors. Good job. You are creative!
