Well I have the new table rail but not the cupboard doors, I was told they were in stock at another store 30 miles away so I can only assume someone forgot to order them

I have done a bit more playing with the other wooden bits but now am really held up until the doors arrive

Finally my doors arrived at my local branch and I went to collect them.

Well after stopping for dinner in a cafe on the way home I set to work on making the outside one, as the doors are only 15mm thick and made of chipboard I made some strengthening bars and glued and screwed them to the underside along with a pad to strengthen where the leg from the big table attaches.

All done now and tried out in the rail,

Next to the old one.

The one for the inside will be more of a problem as I need to cut about 2 inches off one end so it will fit between the rail and the bathroom wall.

I got to work on the other table today, this was the one I most wanted, to make best use of the space at the front of the Triton.

Much like the other one but 500mm wide instead of 600mm, yesterday I cut a couple of inches or so off one end and sealed the cut with varnish.
After a final measure of the leg length (not adjustable) I cut it to length and 1\2 lapped a foot onto it, fitted it, some braces and the strip from the old Puck table and gave it a try.

Looks like this in position.

Not the prettiest tables I've seen but they will do the job required and nothing is fixed so they can come out at any time.
Not a lot of use to most people I must admit but for me I can now sit at the front with room for a 22 inch tv (saves buying another one) my laptop plus a small pair of speakers, somewhere to eat inside and room for a cup of tea or a glass of something.

Very nice too but I hope you've not taken your shoes off yet because I need you to check a few dimensions on your newish 430.
