Glad they sold well for you. Nice set up you have. Mind sharing what price you were asking for the tables?

Well done.. and nice display! I'd be curious too as to your asking price.

Mine were all cutting board style tops with hardwood bases and a 3/8" steel spike with the tip rounded. I feel like the wood spikes are going to get damaged being in the ground and the 1/4" might be too flimsy.

After searching on Etsy and looking at other peoples work I decided that $80 was a decent price. I started with 9 tables and by the end of day 1 I had 1 left

Very nice! Mine was very similar except I used 1/2" aluminum rod from HD. Sounds like a good price too!

Very nice. I've had one of these on my bucket list for some time. How does the table stay/latch in the horizontal position during use? Is there a pin or other locking mechanism I'm not seeing?

I had planned on adding a dowel as a locking pin, but once I had them built I realized that the table is remarkably stable. The table top is offset a little from the base so that once it's folded down it stays there.

And thanks for the comments! I'm looking forward to building some more of these!

So nothing holds it in the "up" position other than friction in the swing axle?

Oddly enough, no. But, as I said, its remarkably stable. I was really planning on installing a locking pin and I just didn't feel it was necessary. Actually, the fact that the top is slightly offset from the center as it sits on the top of the leg the lack of balance is very helpful to keeping it down.
