Alan Meijer says:

Is the top attached to the base or does it just lay on top. If it's as heavy as you say it is, it probably doesn't need attachment.

Justin Schmidt says:

Do you have the video showing you make and form the concrete top?

Luke Giduz says:

Hey pete, i love your videos! I have a question, what's the best way to attach a concrete table top to its base? i have a 20" x 40" concrete top and a 16" x 30" base so there will be some overhang. it's a small enough project to where i think it would be preferable to attach it instead of just resting it on the top. Thoughts? Would liquid nails be strong enough?

Chuck Cheesman says:

yes sir that is the one

Chuck Cheesman says:

Hey pete these are cool plans. How about showing us a plan for that assembly table you have? I like that one

Pete! I love your videos! Can you please PLEASE build a table for a big green egg grill. I'd love to see how that would turn out! Ur awesome!

Great looking design Pete!

tzkelley says:

Great project! One suggestion though–if you ensure you're bottom boards are cupped downwards they'll drain water better.

Jacob Does says:

Great idea! I'm new to this DIY usually I just buy the items I want but some aren't exactly what I want or pictured in my head. So the more I watch your videos the more I get inspired to build my own thing! Keep up the great videos!
