New support for glass table top

I finally finished the support for the glass table top.  The table was pretty sturdy, but when we would lean against the side of the glass top, it would tip.

I would have liked to build a 3 pronged support to match the 3 sides of the base.  But I’m not skilled enough with woodwork to manage that.  So I made a simple cross piece that is screwed into the round metal piece below.

It works!  The table top doesn’t tip even if I lean against it.

I will keep my eyes out for a metal 3 pronged support to replace it with someday, but for now, this will do.

Stove cover freshly painted. It will get one more coat to make it uniformly shiny -- I hope!

I also got the stove top repainted.  I used Rustoleum Appliance Epoxy paint.  I prefer working with regular Rustoleum because the epoxy is thicker and a little harder for me to get uniformly smooth.  But at least it looks clean and fresh now.

My FireDancer propane campfire arrived yesterday.  I haven’t lit it yet, but I really like the look and feel.  It’s sturdy and feels like a quality product.

My only beef with it is that the photos showed the ceramic logs extending to the metal edge of the unit.  The logs that I received, however, look like they were made for a smaller unit, and are 1″ short of the sides all the way around.

I love the Fire Dancer propane campfire, but am disappointed that the logs don't fit the base better.

I have written to the company I bought it from to see if I was inadvertently shipped the wrong size logs.

Finally, I received my patio mat today.  I really like it!  It’s acrylic and is definitely not something you would want in your house.  But to put in mud or sand in front of the Casita’s door, I think it will be perfect.  It looks like it will just hose clean when it’s time to pack up and go.

The reversible patio mat. I like it!
