    Wow! Love the material. Nice job making the worktop. You will miss that beautiful space when you give it up to move to a different worktop. If you don't have to tug it around just keep it there forever.
    What country do you go to next?

    Love the simple idea for a machine extension table - that's the next thing I need, and your version makes me think it's do-able! Thanks for sharing!
