New here! DIY Stainless table questions....
I've been oggling my dad's egg for a few years now. He called me yesterday and said, "Merry Christmas Danielle, go buy yourself a Large BGE on me."
Best. Dad. Ever.
Needless to say, I've been eating up all of your posts since. My biggest concern at the moment is a home for my new baby. My dad said he'd buy me an egg and a nest... but, I was thinking that for the $141 price tag of a nest, I could spend a little bit more and get something way better for the money. I found a used stainless steel kitchen prep table (7 feet long!) on Craigslist for $200. Before I buy it, I'd like to know a few things:
1.) How do I cut it? I've read on other threads that I should use a plasma cutter but that's just not feasible. Other people say a jig saw will do it but my father-in-law (the owner of the jig saw I would be using) looked at me like I had three heads when I suggested it would cut stainless. If you used a jig saw, what blade did you use and how many did it take? Did it work? Tips?
2.) Do I need to put anything under my egg or can it just sit on the lower (solid) stainless steel shelf? Will heat be an issue if I do this? Should I put a tile or something between the shelf and the egg?
3.) I plan to get a platesetter right away. Is there anything else I MUST have immediately?
4.) Thoughts on covers? I live in New England...
