Table Finally Finished

Hey all.  First time poster long time follower to the forum.
Got an egg for Christmas and have been laboring away on a table for it.
I've seen some amazing tables on this site and figured I'd throw mine into the fray.   
Anywho, here it is.  This was a really fun project.  
Now it's time to add the bottle opener and hooks for grilling tools.

    BGJ, nicely done. What is top made of? If you are OCD like me, you may reposition the ceramic feet to be even. What type of Tyler is underneath?

    Tile, not Tyler.

  • Thanks Chubbs.  The top is made from a corian kitchen countertop I got off of craigslist.  I needed something that had lots of counter space and would be perfect for prepping.
    The tile was a left over piece of ceramic I had lying around.

    Thank you Kristi.  I wanted to use a darker stain but the counter top dictated otherwise.

  • Thanks. It was pure luck finding those casters. Figured they would be a nice touch.

    Cool looking table. I'm also in the process of building mine-I'll post pictures when done-so I know how time consuming it can be. What did you use for wood...pine? I used red oak, which some people have said is very porous and not good for outdoor use. I'm using 2 coats of Spar Urethane-think I'll be OK. Also good score on the casters. They look like the ones I got at Rockler, only mine are red. My only thought is will the thin tile on lower shelf be thick enough? You're using the feet so you should be OK but I was just thinking out loud. Great job!
  • I did use pine. Heck of a lot cheaper than cypress. In the end I used a deck stain with some color in it.
    I wasn't quite sure about the tile underneath but with the ceramic feet on, it has never gotten hot yet.

  • Mine is made out of PT pine. My cocrete counter top is being made this week. I plan on staining it with Sikkens SRD stain. In my opinion, Sikkens is the best stain on the market, bar none. I am a teacher and a deck builder/handyman in the summer. Sikkens has held up better on the decks than any other product.

  • That concrete counter top should look great. What kind of weight are you expecting it to be?
    I'll have to look into sikkens. Thanks for the tip.
    Lucky to have a LG Egg My Blog:
  • Not sure about the weight. I'd guess 200 lbs at max. It will be 5 ft long x 32" and 2" thick.

    Sikkens is only available @ small independent retailers. I get mine at the local Benjamin Moore dealer. The web site has a dealer locator.

    Nice work on the table, looks great.
  • Noticed the BGE cover in the background... do you still use it, or are you getting a whole table cover?

    Nice catch. Sadly, the bge table cover doesn't fit because of the countertop. It's basically brand new but I can't return it. So I guess the next step is trying to sell it. Currently I'm using a green tarp from the depot.

    I use an atv cover for mine. Thirty bucks and has elastic making it easy to take on and off. Works great so far
    Geaux Tigers!!!
  • Great work. You're really going to love that thing.

  • I had some left over Corian so I decided to add this retractable table leaf.  There's no such thing as too much counter space.
