eight seater bbq table

Hi, I had wrote questioning about placing a 1 1/4 hole in the center of a octagon table without causing a weak structure where the metal straps cross.
I figured it out and would like to pass along the information for the next person who might build the table and want to place a umbrella on it.
Go to a hardware store and get a 1 1/4" galv. floor flange and bolt it to the center of the table and then add a 12" X 1 1/4" nipple. Eliminate the 1 1/2" pole that comes with the umbrella and place the 1 1/4" pole into the 12 " nipple. The table is heavy enough to hold the umbrella. You may have to drill the steel plates before securing it with a lag bolt. I don't do carpenters work but I found the plans very easy to follow and here is a picture of my table.
Thank you very much. You made my wife very happy. Ha Ha
