Well i decided to design and build a table of course. But it couldnt be just any table, it needed 2 eggs an awesome top and wood that would last a lifetime. So here is what i designed and built.

  • Ok well this image thingy isnt working
  • If you have the pic on your hard drive, just click "Attach a File" down on the bottom left of your comment box, then navigate to the directory where your pic is, then it should be self-explanatory from there. 

    If your pics are stored on an image hosting site (ie, photobucket, etc), then click on the 4th icon from the right above the comment box (hover over it & it should say "insert image") then insert the URL of where your pic is located.

  • cant post from an ipad:(
  • the base is made out of redwood ans the top is a single piece of soapstone
  • edge of stone

  • Looks awesome!  Nice craftsmanship.

    I feel a whole lot more like I do now than I did when I got here.
  • I still made a couple mistakes but it looks and functions reaaly well.
  • It looks very nice and welcome. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • Thats a great set up.  Lots of work room and lots of bbq room.  Great job.

    Very nice job, I like that chiseled edge detail. Is that a Lg. & Med ?


  • Impressive. That is a huge piece of soapstone. Hope your deck is reinforced for the load. You probably know this, but don't be tempted to clean it with Windex type cleaners which will mar the oiled finish.

    Wonder what it would cost to get a Big Blue Egg cut from a large block of soapstone?

  • My high school chemistry lab had soapstone topped tables or benches.  If it can take the abuse of years of pimple faced jugheads, then I'm sure it can take anything!

    Nice work. I really dig it. Are your eggs sitting on those new table nests from BGE?

    Very, very nice!   My simple nest is starting to look ridiculous.

  • The Egg on the right is a Large, Left of that is a Medium.

    They are both sitting on next my Friend Made out of iron rod.

    I had my Deck Made knowing that this was going to be on top.  I do have to add a couple pieces of wood on the bottom under the legs, below the decking to support the decking.  It is Composite and just want to keep it level when it heats up next summer, don't need it warping :)

    For anyone considering this type of table, burn your checkbook.....

    Very nice! Is soapstone cheaper than granite?

    You'll be fine with the composite. Extra support won't be needed. As long as you built according to national code and manufacturer specs, the deck is designed to support 40lbs/sq ft of live load. Dead load is significantly higher. I'm not an engineer. Perhaps others could chime in with a dead load calculation.

    Very, very nice!  I like the clean look, and your base has the traditional table construction instead of the frankenstein lag-bolt from the outside joinery.

    What type of wood did you use?  I like the design.  Was the table top the most expensive part?
