    I appreciate the compliments, but what does your critical e eye see?
    i have received P.M , with concerned of the exposed mechanical hardware, the harsh edges, weight, ect.
    Example is of one that would be base model, made as well but at the same time with cost in mind.

    Do you think a table made from solid wood of top quality, classic joinery techniques, with more detail given to shape and form, thus raising costs immensely be worth it to you?
    Remember Target, Walmart sells stuff similar for 50.00 dollars,
    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    Gooser, it is really nice. I don't use that kind of chair, I'm too old to climb out of them. What about something that would hold the other kind of chair:

    I think it would be cool to have set up somewhere, long term. I would go with the old steamer trunk materials and style.

    Personally I think the weight would be the biggest issue, plus getting banged up in my dog truck all the time. Rust would be a factor perhaps for the hinges and putting wet chairs back inside the cabinet. On another note, you ever thought of building a pool table?

    Gooser, you only have one choice, make folding wood chairs which fit into a folding wood table to pull this off-

    Gooser now that some have mentioned it, the weight might be an issue for me. How heavy is it?
    But I think on the whole the idea is really a neat one. And I like the look of the table! Can you put the hardware inside and be able to keep the towel rack? I was trying to think where I could put something like that in my truck (it's a Ranger? and small) ! What is nice it holds two chairs. Great idea!

    Gooser, your work is impressive as always. It is clear that you are a true craftsman, a rarity these days IMO. However, I too think weight would be an issue and if it were mine it would be a shame that it would get beat up in and out of my truck, but it would. I am sure there are those who like the finer things in life enough to purchase and proudly use it. It would be a conversation starter for sure.
