Looks great. I would love a ladder, but I use a bike rack so not sure it would work. Can you stand on ladder and wash entire top? With the coffee maker, do you make sure AC is off or just go for it? I haven't tried that yet, but I think AC is designed to shut itself off when power is pulled. My AC goes off by itself when I use microwave and then it goes back on when microwave done.

(1) I need to give that a try... will report back.

(2) I wanted to test using only batteries (using inverter), I can use the Nespresso machine. My concern was the 1000watts inverter with a 1200watts machine. But it worked. This is for when we stop and we just want to have some coffee, wanting to avoid having to fire up the generator to make a cup of coffee...

Since I was there testing this, I fired the generator and started the A/C. I let it run for 5-10 minutes...then turned on the Nespresso machine and the A/C turned off. So when using the generator, it behaves like you described.

Done with the covers for the holes on the floor... the first one I tested was stained too red... the second one too dark... so just took another wood disc and covered it with matching laminate...

Turtle I was planning to use on the disc would not stick to the laminate so to the back window it went...

WACHUKO - Too bad. The TURTLE would've been my 1st choice too - I am partial to the turtle because it is part of the family crest (on my mom's father's side from the ole' country). This would be a good example, a custom shower drain that can be ordered in 3.25" 4" or 4.25" polished or brush S.S. Pricey but nice :D

Alex, those are beautiful. Was not aware they made them... Ordered!!

Edit: Correction. Email sent to them to see if they sell them without the screw holes... just like the photo shared. I can then just insert them into a wood plate/disc.

Wish there was a nice story to it like your family crest. In our case, being from the Caribbean, we just love sea turtles.

Thank you for finding this. Much, much appreciated!!

WACHUKO - These are handmade. I am sure if you talk to them prior to ordering, they can delete screw holes. I just realized their largest is still smaller than the 7" base. Maybe they will do a larger. I want to order a couple myself (larger 7" or not) but not until I get rid of the table base plate. Deciding on finish yet. ;)

Alex,

Robert just replied. He can make them in any size. I want them in brushed stainless finish since they go on the floor and will get stepped over. As much as I would like a smooth shiny finish, they would end up with scratches

Asking for a quote on two in 7”

Glad to be of service. It was all because of your find. I let him know. Waiting on reply.

WACHUKO - Got PM. Called him already. He said I can order any of the other designs already pre-designed on his website. He did offer to do my Raiders or Golden Knights logos but since is not an existing design, the upcharge fee is too steep. I am happy with the turtle and pre-designed ones. Thanks for PM info.

FYI , I will order with a wider flange to make sure it covers the existing screw holes. I will drill the holes myself using existing base as template.

ROWIEBOWIE - Pretty sure I am beyond saving. Fam gave up on me long time ago :lol: Wachuko is much younger, he can still get salvation.
