Table suggestions/Dealer suggestions

Thinking about buying a table for my Large BGE. Of all the pre made ones, what is the best wood? I've seen cypress, treated pine, cedar, and red cedar.

Which wood would be the best? We get all types of weather here. Rain, Snow, you name it we get it.

Any suggestions? I've just been looking on Ebay.... Any online dealers with custom tables that you would suggest?

Thanks

    Dex - my two tables are both cedar with a California Red stain/sealer. It has been great...water just beads up on it and wipes right off. Thus far - not a bit of warping, splintering, and cleans up like the day I finished it.

    Let me know if you want to see a few pics -

    Jim, Yes I would love to see some pics! Your wood was just regular cedar or was it red cedar?

    Thanks

    Regular cedar because I knew that I was going to use a heavy stain/sealer. Mine is also on the nakedwhiz website...looks like one table but is actually two with the mini being portable that we can take on the pontoon boat. Many times - I'll pull the mini out and roll it next to the chairs...then can sit and cook while enjoying a big boy beverage. :)

    Mothership (BGE - just go to the website), Fred's music and BBQ, local dealer. If you check online for Big Green Egg tables or ceramic cooker tables - a ton will pop up. Cypress and cedar are the most popular in my eyes...both are very durable and do well in all weather.

    i used treated pine and it has been great...I am waiting for it to dry a little before we stain it.

  • Other than Fred's where have people bought pre-made tables. Unfortunately I don't have the time or craftsmenship to make a table anywhere near the quality of the tables presented in this thread.

    (I may use Fred's but I don't relish the thought of having to pick up the table at the trucking company depot. I doubt the table would fit in my car, so I would have to rent a truck or borrow a friend's SUV.)

    Dex,
    Check out www.mykamadotable.com. It is a metal table, but really first class. I will post some pictures of mine as soon as I get a chance. The enclosed table gives you storage that keeps utensils out of the kitchen drawer,and charcoal dry.

    Regards,
    John
