Another Table thread

I'm about half way done with my table using Pine wood. Has anyone used Pine before and what stain/sealant/color did they use? I like the color of Retired Railroaders table on NW's site. Anyone have any recommendations?

    I used mostly oak for my table but there were a few pine boards in there. Here is a link to the full detailed report for my table which includes the specific type of stain and urethane combo that I used. This thread takes a little while to load due to all the photos.

    I do recommend a darker stain since it will tend to get dirty over time from all the lump, ashes, spilled sauces, etc. I also recommend several thin coats with ample time to dry and a light sanding in between, then finish with a quality sealer or urethane.

    I used pressure treated fence pickets from home depot. They were OK but had the tendency to split. I would have countersunk the heads more if I were to do it over. I used stainless deck screws and let it dry six months and used a deck stain left over from the kids play set. I would include a picture but don't know how. I would check availability on paver stones before construction. I could not get the exact same size as called for in the instructions. And one more tip, I forgot to build a bird house first. I don't do woodwork often and over time developed the habit of building a bird house prior to wood working projects. This way I get the dust knocked off my skills prior to the real work.
    Good luck for the cost of a BGE table I bought materials for a much larger and nicer table. The instructions were great.
