I'm in the process of building a table for my buddy who is a new owner of a large. The table is made of white oak and will be stained with Sikkens door and window mahogany stain. The panels are stained before assembly so as they expand and contract the raw wood won't show. The rest will be stained upon completion.
The top will be concrete and the paver that the egg sits on will also be custom made to match the counter top.
