Egg in custom stone surround/table - with pic

edited July 2014 in EGG Table Forum

Hi everyone,

I'm super late posting this, table was done a year and a half ago, and I asked the forum for some help/inspiration back in 2012 in this thread:

http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1141332/need-some-inspiration-for-my-bge-surrounded-in-stone

 

And here is a work in progress thread:

 

http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/comment/1218602/#Comment_1218602

 

Here is the table:

Only possible minor greivance is it's tough to keep the stone clean without leaving some grease marks, and it stains.  I'm past the point of no return with these stains, so I figure I'll just keep adding to them and call it patina.

    That's a really nice setup. I really like the outdoor seating area by the fireplace.

    They make a stone sealer...I've sealed my slate tiles.

    Henaple, I got too excited and was egging on there before I got my hands on sealer. By that time some grease stains were in there for good and I was hesitant to seal them in...it actually looks a little better with more stains instead of small ones standing out. But lesson learned...seal next time before using.

    Someone has excellent taste.

    Thanks, my first table was much more modest, built that one 9 years ago and gave it to a friend when I moved into this setup. I would have put 2 eggs in, but really didn't have the setup/space. I have a gasser collecting dust on the right that you can't see. And so you know that I'm not high brow, if I need the added grill space I've started using clay flower pots. Got the idea from the wicked good guys' cookbook.

    Over the mantel is a horrible place for a TV.  You have to crane your neck back to look up to watch it.  It's very uncomfortable to watch that way.  Plenty of people think it's a good place, but in truth it's really not good at all.

    Awesome outdoor room.

    What kind of stone is it?
