    Nice stove. Wish we could find those little table tops this side of the Atlantic. I know there are the evil on line auctions but in perhaps a futile attempt to keep my stove pox under some control, I prefer to “discover” these things in person. That is a great find. Congratulations and welcome to this fine forum.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Table homemade from old decathlon, which the fabric was removed because it was perforated, and the aluminum plate found in dump...
