We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers
for a backyard grill out, some brats
before a baseball game or searing a steak
for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Sorry for the post here...not much action on the BGE Table forum...thought someone here might be able to help. I hope you don't mind the post here admin/folks...if so please forgive and remove:
After drooling over countless wonderful egg tables at the Naked Whiz...here...and all over the net:
1) I calculated the materials that I would need given the wood species that I desired and realized that I would be spending far more money.
1.5) I'd still have to hunt down desirable wheels/casters
2) I don't have a chop saw
3) I don't have free time
4) I don't have wood working prowess
5) I like my fingers
I went ahead and bought the long BGE Cypress table. I got it on ebay..it was VERY reasonable (even including the shipping) when compared to any local dealer for the exact same table. It was also only $20 more than buying JUST THE WOOD for a proposed home made Naked Whiz type table (red oak from the local lumber supplier).
Now...I need your expertise. I'd like to stain this table a dark brown color. I'd then like to seal it with some type of wood sealer / lacquer / or some such toxic waste I like the idea of spilling sauce on it...putting the grill brush on it....then being able to wipe it off with a sponge.
I knowthat it's just wood and it'd be fine....but a boat finish lacquer type stuff might just give it an almost plastic like laminated top. I don't know if I'm crazy....but the table seems pretty decent...especially with a little stain and then a super protective lacquer coating....at least on the table top portion of the table.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
