As you can see from a previous post, I'm giving my BGE table a makeover. One issue I've had since I bought the table was sagging (cupping) of the lower shelf due to the weight of the BGE (large) on it.
Last night I removed the outer porition that had sagged and I'm now looking to cut new wood to replace it. (1 x 3's that have been doubled in thickness, essetially creating a 2x3) This time, I plan on supporting the weight of the egg on the lower shelf with 2x4 cross beams underneath the shelf running the entire distance.
My question is, can anyone recommend a harder wood to construct the exterior of the bottom shelf so it will not be prone to sagging (cupping)?
