San Diego Egg Table

Finally got around to building a proper home for my egg. Used redwood and plans on scottmoore.net. Finished with four coats of marine polyurethane. My table nest should be in this weekend so I'll be replacing the pavers with a piece of granite. Hooks on the end are stainless mini boat cleats. Still trying to pick out a good towel rack for the front. Suggestions?

    The self righteous ale is a winner.  The hops of an IPA with the body of a porter.  It's one of the better new beers I've had in the past year, and I've had a lot of beer :)  

    Sorry no rec on the towel rack, but you built a beautiful table to go with your beautiful view.

    The first thing that I thought was how did someone make a table that chokes, but then I realized it wasn't related to the football team in San Diego.

    Haha.

    In all seriousness good looking table.

    Very nice table!  Looks like you did not have to go far to purchase the marine polyurethane. Rosecrans to Shelter Island Dr...then East three blocks to San Diego Marine Exchange. You have a nice view of Shelter Island, NAS North Island and downtown San Diego. I live on the opposite side (Sunset Cliffs) of the hill.

    Great looking table and great view, is that looking out on Mission Bay? I lived in PB for 5 years and came to Texas, now the wife and I are discussing moving out there.

    I lived in Kingsville, TX for a short time while I was in the Navy. A native San Diegian I much prefer the Pacific Ocean view to the Gulf view. Come on back...pretty soon we will have enough folks to start buying lump by the pallet.

    That's the old mine sweeper base that used to be down there isn't it? I was stationed in San Diego and then went to SDSU for a semester. Came to Texas because I had so much fun in San Diego.

    It's a view looking down at La Playa and San Diego Yacht Club. On the far side is NAS North Island Coronado.

  • Your table looks great..  Curious,  where did you find the 20x20 tile? type of material?  I like the thickness of tile that you have..  I have been looking for one at Home Depot and Lowe's..

    Dat view!!!!

    I was in San Diego for the first time this past spring.  It's on the short list of places to move to shortly. I would love to have that patio and view.  Add a kegerator with fresh Ballast Point Sculpin and call it heaven!

    Nice looking shoulder. And what a beautiful day to be outside cooking. Nice cloud formations to the North of us. Enjoy!

    The view from your deck is spectacular.  I would sit outside 18 hours a day.
