While on a visit at Melanie's brothers I noticed an old disused barbecue frame. And in one of those moments when clouds part and a beam of light shines down accompanied by the voices of angles, I knew what I was destined to do. So I brought it home, with his permission, and combined it with the broken umbrella frame, left over from the chook dome, to make a seedling table.
I cut the two central bars and raised them to fill the gap in the table top. I fastened them in place using a metal bracket that I got from the hardware store.
The umbrella frame I cut into pieces and nailed them to the bars to make the slats. A tip when nailing hardwood is to partly pre-drill the nail holes. I would highly recommend hardwood or metal for a seedling table as it is more tolerant of the outdoors and constant moisture from the watering can.
One thing I really like about this table is it already comes with wheels. I can now move it around to catch or hide from the sun.
Finally... throw a few seedling on the barbie.
Would you believe looking at the photos just now I realised it would have been simpler to cut the bottom self off and use it to complete the table top. Then move the central bars down. Would have looked better too. Dam you hindsight.
