Labor of love, well done. Want to pass along a little thing I did - for the flip down access storage area under the table: Built two little open top boxes to fit under there. Used a string for a handle, making it easy to pull them out but you could cut out a hand slot just as easily. Oherwise, that space is easily inaccessible and wasted. For us, it was big enough to sotre a couple of rolls of paper towels plus Captain's must-haves (aka junk)

Very nice job!!
Ours had the same wasted space under the table. It was divided into 3 separate sections. I built boxes to slide in/out with finger holes for pulling out. We store pop/picnic supplies (napkins/paper plates/extra plastic ware in those. I am going to do some reinforcement of the table's support bracket using heavy fender washers up against the floor mount w/ SS bolts/lock nuts - too much wobble currently and the Admiral would like it so that her food doesn't slide all over...

... although to me, it was just a nice variation on "please pass the mashed potatoes" scenario.
