I set up at the open house for our new church building last Saturday to demo some DO cooking.
Brought along the cooking table for its first use and two plow disks.

We made buttermilk biscuits, 80 cinnamon sugar doughnuts (cut in half) PUD cake and artisan bread.

A number of people saw cast iron cooking for the first time and were amazed at what you could make.
Had 50 copies of a 9 page pamphlet I put together on DO cooking taken from various sources online. Handed out a few of those.

Here is the table last Friday before painting.

I used the info Joanne posted at this link:
http://camp-cook.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=194&highlight=

Table dimensions are 1/8" x 24" x 48 and is plenty strong for this application.
Windscreen is 20ga sheet metal and is 12" high.
Piano hinges were used for the windscreen.
1/8" x 1" angle iron was also used and that really stiffened up the table.
The table legs were just the right height for me as I am 6' 2".

All welding done with a MIG welder.
Also used a high temp black paint to keep rust to a minimum.

Made some mistakes but functionality wasn't affected.
I'm still considering using a plasma cutter to round off the top ends of the side windscreens.
But that's more for looks than anything.
Maybe I'll do that for the next one.

How did you get the legs to lay flat when folded? Doug

The legs don't lay flat but that doesn't seem to be a problem.
It gets transported in a cargo trailer.
I lay a section of folded up canvas drop cloth on top of the dutch ovens and it lays on top of that.
It is stored at home leaning against a wall and not laying flat.

Not sure on weight.
Feels like it weighs less than a 40lb bag of wood pellets.
Will have to do a comparison and I'll let you know.

I haven't seen any commercial tables which may be more convenient for transport, but overall I am happy with the results.

Nice cooking table, but I am in love with the table you made with the saw horses and planks of wood! You just gave me an idea for my for my island/butcher block for my kitchen.

Staci, Thumbs Up
I'd like to know more about that sometime.
We're talking about building a new home where we live now. Maybe a cape cod style with the house being designed around the kitchen.

Your table turned out real nice. It looks bigger than mine and I'm sure the extra cooking space is always welcome. I love the tall wind breaks. It seems like it's always windy here in the desert, so the protection always helps.

Nice job!
