  • looks good. What type finish before and after ? How long did the first one last ?

  • I guess technically it was just finished...not re-finished, as the wood was stock from the factory.

     

    I used minwax red mahogany followed up with their semi gloss spar varnish.

  • looks great!  you said the wood is from the factory - is it from BGE is there pricing on their site
    ·
  • I believe it is a BGE OEM accessory.  I bought it from a BGE retailer at the same time as the egg.  I think the wood is cypress, and it retails unfinished for around $500.  I honestly forgot exactly what I paid for it.

  • Nice job, my wife just told me I can do our two tables. LOL thanks. 

    Love the colour though.  
    :-))
    I'm ashamed of what I did for a Klondike Bar.

  • Looks awesome. Just got my table from my fiancé for Christmas, so I very might well finish it in this color. Any issues with food dropping on this finish? Do you think it will hold up? If mine is unfinished will I have to sand it?

  • Very Nice Looking. Enjoy it.

    My looks almost exactly like this one with a semi gloss finish.  Cleanup is a breeze.  I did sand it down starting with a fine grand and moving to very fine before even staining.  It comes in pretty good shape but sanding is needed in my opinion.  (only plan to do it once myself)  I cover mine when not in use but I live in Vegas where the sun is intense.  Seems to be holding up very well.
