Just dropped my egg in it last night, and thought i would snap some pics of it today, in the daytime..

I am happy to finally have a work surface, and also storage for my accessories, lump, utensils, etc.

It is made out of white oak, stained with Minwax Sedona Red, and finished with Spar Urethane.

I have to put on my Stainless Hooks, and it will be all done.

    very nice and I don't want to throw cold water on you - but I thought BGE recommends to NOT use the feet with an XL. Anybody want to correct me or clarify?

    Nice job on your table. I like where you have a drawer and a cabinet for storage.

    One thing you might want to consider, if you are a beer drinker, is a bottle cap opener. It's just adds to the message of GRILLIN' AND CHILLIN.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.. I appreciate it.

    As for the feet, i plan to add a 4th foot, actually, and really don't see myself having an issue, even at 3.

    I had a paver cut into 4 pieces, and put a whole paver in the center, and have 4 on the outside of that in which the feet can rest on. There is allot of airflow under there, by not just having a solid paver.

    Here is a shot underneath, to get a reference of the storage. I think i should easily be able to get 70+lbs of lump under there.. The other side fits all the XL accessories easily.

    Thanks..

    An opener is for sure going to make its way on there. I am just looking for the right one. I want something a bit unique, and something that will compliment the table.
  • Great looking table! The work area and storage
    is very nice. As a rookie, I didn't quite know
    what I needed but it looks like it was well thought
    out by you, good job!

    Wow, thanks so much..

    Thanks allot.. I actually looked at the table gallery for inspiration, then added specific things that i wanted. I wanted to maximize storage space so i could fit my lump, and my XL accessories. I really wanted a big working area. I also had a picture in my mind as far as color scheme i wanted, and the overall "feel" i wanted it to have.

    I actually found a guy on Craigslist to build it. I explained to him exactly what i wanted, dimensions, etc. We went back and forth for a while, designing it, untill we had something i liked.. It cost around 650-700 said and done(materials/labor) so really not too bad..
  • Looks really nice... Good idea on finding a carpenter, you got exactly what you wanted and i think the price was pretty good.
  • BoneheadBonehead Posts: 113
    Wow :woohoo: That looks terrific
  • RRPRRP Posts: 21,566
    me thinks the builder was more of a professional cabinet maker vs just a carpenter based on the quality of construction. I agree that was a good price...the guy must have been a tad hungry for business!

    Nice job, beautiful looking table.
  • azbbguyazbbguy Posts: 191
    Thanks again everyone..

    The price could have been lowered quite a bit if i had used the wheels from my nest(wheels at home depot were like $15 a piece), and if i chose a cheaper tile instead of granite.. Also the white oak was a bit more then red oak, and cypress.

    Not to mention those hooks are like $15 each..
