<p />imgp2308a_s.jpg[p]First let me thank so many of you who have been unknowingly molding my egger development for many weeks. A couple of months ago I was first exposed to the BGE, and after eating the best steak of my life, I knew I had to have one of these!

When I saw the BGE table at my local dealer I was unimpressed, way to flimsy and not really what I wanted. So after finding this forum and TNW's site I decided to build my own and reward myself upon completion with the purchase of an egg - A special thanks to TNW's table gallery page and the contributers there from which I drew many idea for my table.[p]As my deck is not covered, I decided to build a table with a water-tight cabinet so that I could keep my lump in the table.[p]Well, the table has progressed nicely, but before it was completely finished my wife decided to surprise me with the egg. Fortunately I was far enough along to go ahead and install it and fire it up.
imgp2315_s.jpg[p]Last night I prepared T-REX RibEye's for my wife and she was blown away. [p]imgp2319_s.jpg[p]Now to finish the table, the granite you see sitting on top will be recessed into the surface when I'm done, and I've still got a 2nd coat of stain to put on the doors and install knobs and magnetic door catches, but otherwise it's done.[p]Now the learning get switch into high gear.[p]Thanks to everyone here for the all the help![p]EggNerd

    EggNerd,[p]Dude, that's an awesome looking table and is actually just what I want. How much would you charge to build me one just like it and bring it to atlanta? Can you do one that would hold two larges?[p]

    EggNerd, when you get it completed get a picture to TNW so he can post it on his gallery. Nice Job!

    EggNerd,
    That a good looking Table! I considered closing my table in with a cabinet but decided to just keep my lump in plastic tubs on the bottom shelf of the table.
    Welcome to Egg Nation and keep the photos coming!
