    Very nice table and I like the slate top.

    One suggestion is to get a bigger paver stone under the BGE and use the BGE feet or copper T's between the paver & the bottom of the BGE. This allows airflow to cut down on heat transfer and scorching.

    There have been several documented cases of the tables scorching because of the heat from the bottom of the BGE.

  • adhesive on to treated plywood...you have to use a non-sand grout on the slate because of the water absorption of the slate.

  • I'll second vidalia's motion. I've got marble underneath but was told that it's better to have airflow under the BGE. It will take two of you to lift it to put the three feet that came with the egg underneath between the BGE and base.

  • Very nice work

  • it is sitting on 3 firebricks about 1.5" form teh wood....is this not enough airflow?

  • How much do you think your table weighs? I just finished mine with a Xl and it is hard to push around on 4 casters. does the extra 2 casters help?

  • man it weighs a TON....I have 6 4x4s as post, solid 5 3/4 boards all the way around, the slate top and the Egg. If had to do it over, I would use 4" casters so it was easier to move on my deck
