Hey everyone!

Just finished my table yesterday evening!!! I let it sit out overnight for the final coat of sealant to dry. I basically used the plans provided on the Naked Whiz site with some scaling back to my taste and budget. Since I don't have a bunch of fancy wood working equipment, I used regular old dimensional lumber in 4x4's and 2x4's for the framing, then went slightly nicer with 1x6 Western Red Cedar for the decking. As you can see, one of the boards was really dark, so that went in the middle as my "racing stripe". I'm planning on getting a couple of burly football players or a crane over to the house today to pick the thing up and put it on the back deck since it is heavy as hell. Once in place I can install and build my BGE tonight. Can't wait!!!

    Very nice. If you want to be safe when installing the egg, take the top off first. Just don't forget to use the little plastic thingy that keeps the springs set.

    Looks good WhackMaster! I like the grain pattern on the front face of the frame..

    Deadskins, what plastic thingy are you reffering to?
  • I think it is the piece that attaches to the hinge so the springs don't snap when you loosen the ring. I used some heavier zip ties, one on each side of the hinge. I zipped tied the top and bottom of the hinge together and that held everything just fine.
