Small camping table

Materials: Item: Brada Laptop Support, hand saw.

Description: I have been in search for a small camping table to use on the ground. This table will be for having a flat surface to place beer & Chips, candle, drinks etc on when sitting on ground level.

I found the Brada lap top support to be both sturdy and of acceptable dimensions. Besides, since it is made from laminated wood, the only modification necessary was to chop all the legs to the same length. 5min, and ready to go!

This makes a nice little table to be used on picnics etc.

    Thanks! This is just what I did with my Bräda. Finishing touch with a sandpaper to smoothen some edges.

    I once saw a metalworker at a fair, selling these awesome wrought iron creations that stuck in to the grass with a pointed end, and came up to wrap around to create a bottle/glass holder. And whilst that is brilliant and cool looking… I’m pretty sure I can pull this table thing off a lot easier. :D
