New custom table for BGE - cedar and granite

I am a new owner of the BGE and loving every minute of it!  I used the dimensions off the BGE website for a do it yourself cart to create on with a granite top, one drawer, and a cabinet.  Granite circle was kept to use as a base for the table nest.  Best of all, cover fits well.  Let summer begin.

    Cool! that's a beautiful table. Where did you get the granite? I am looking for a granite top for an outdoor kitchen build, but don't want to break the bank.

    Thank you! I got it here in MN from a local granite shop.  It was a remenant piece so it was cheaper.  Many places I talked to will do work for $25 to $35 a square foot.  However, you can go a lot higher.

    dogfoot, the cover is the one for the BGE large table for the large egg. It is the BGE brand cover with embroidered logo.  Fits like a glove.

    Go to a monument works if you have one close. You may end up with some dead guy's name misspelled on the bottom but he won't care if you don't.

    Great looking table. How do you open your beer with no opener?

    I added one just yesterday after the photos I took.  Time to start a collection I think.

    That's awesome! I would love to include a granite top for a future table rebuild. In no time my wooden table top got some little burned specs from stray ashes and even a dime-size burned spot from a burning ember that jumped out. I also like your granite base. I tend to get the occasional hot ember that's jumps out of the bottom vent if I don't have the screen closed.

    Man that really looks nice.

    Did you do the granite yourself?
    Did you plane that cedar to get it so smooth?

    I had a cabinet maker friend of mine make it.  The granite was from a remnant thus making it less expensive. I think the cedar is factory finish and was not planed or modified.

    This is very similar to what I've designed to build for my egg.  Unfortunately, drawing pictures is the easy part.  Cutting wood is pretty new to me, but I want to see what I can do.

    Hahhahaha!  That's pretty observant.  Best part of grilling on the egg is my dog hangs out with me on the deck.  The "spatchcock" is my Golden Retriever.
