That's where I bought mine. They match the width of my drybox just fine.

No dual duty on the coffee table. Pretty sure that is what you were talking about, but here is the ammo can and coffee table. Super light folds flat and takes up maybe 18x20x1.25 inches folded. I want to make the same thing but out of wood. It fits nice between my two flat costco chairs ( with towel over to left of frame) that I have had for 15 years belive it or not.
I have cracked little table but it has held up for three trips since and still holds three coffee cups and a plate. Only one cup of which was mine.

Nice! I plan on pulling my drybox out this weekend to see if that bag will fit.

And to carvedog, I see no shame in the coffee table. You know they make collapsible little tables like the folding chairs. Might save you some space. I picked this one up for $15 on a deal website. Hike Camp Gear for Kids It's for the kid, but it will be taken on the multiday trips without him for my use!

"You could also stack 2-3 circular saw blades to dado. Overlap the carbide teeth so they don't rub together. "

Ya know....being the cabinetmaker type for almost 40 yrs.... with all of my fingers, that sounds pretty dangerous. At least not without a custom jig to support and control the circular saw. I wouldn't try that and I've pushed the envelope a few times. Of course, I've got 3 phase table saws, shapers, etc.

Not that the jig would need be complicated or made from expensive materials. I've made them my whole life. Usually out of scape from around the shop or job site. Hardly anyone has them anymore, but a radial arm saw would be perfect. If you have a sliding miter saw that has adjustable depth settings, it would be a whole lot safer than a circular saw. A sliding plywood shoe on a table saw, which is how I would do it in the shop would be just as good as a radial arm saw.

Fair point.

Going back to the "Trading beer for wood cutting" would be the easiest/safest/cheapest solution!

This is the cocktail table we have. Always a big hit on river trips, concerts on the grass, etc.

GCI Outdoors Top-Shelf Camp Table

Ours is mostly steel. Legs, cross pieces, etc. Still pretty light & compact.

Is it bad that this is my real furniture... dry box coffee table and rocket box end tables... if I got an aire couch it would be more complete... I got tired of packing the dry box up and down the stairs from the basement..
