We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin
and Ground Beef Acorn Squash
recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
Finally got around to posting pics of my table I finished earlier in the year. Seeing the pics of other tables was invaluable, and I was able to come up with a design to make my own.
I utilized reclaimed LA cypress that is close to 100 years old, a chunk of Black Amazon granite from our kitchen island cook top cutout, and a portion of a stainless table. My in-laws were kind enough to purchase the Egg for us as a Christmas gift, and the cypress and stainless came from my father. It was a really fun project (short of the splinters and about a thousand old rusty nails I had to pull, and a few sets of planer knives ruined on those I missed) that enabled me to bring materials together from both my wife's and my family.
Joinery is mortise and tenon, with pocket hole screws and lots of Titebond III, with no visible fasteners. All stainless casters and hooks from McMaster-Carr. Worm holes filled with boat making epoxy, and finished with 5-6 coats of hand rubbed spar urethane.
Enough talk - everyone likes pics so here you go. Hopefully someone can gain an idea or two from mine like those so many I pilfered from others. Cheers.
