Got a new BGE table and am looking for some pics to help me decide the stain color. Any that you have would appreciated.

    Look on the egg table forum (top of the page), or go to the naked whiz...

    Or just do a google image search

    Plenty of pics available as mentioned above, but a natural finish with spar varnish is hard to beat :)

    I just finished a cypress table. I used Cabot Jarrah Brown. Then 3 coats of urethane.

    If you don't stain it and it's going to be outside I would suggest using Minwax Clear Shield. It protects the wood much better than urethane.

    Beautiful table but you night want to consider feet between the egg and paver.

    Thanks for the compliment and feedback. A good point and one I hope I learned from reading about other people's problems with that. Instead of pavers I used 1 1/2" firebrick. These are set on 1x4's that are mounted vertically for strength and ventilation. I've run the Egg at 700 degrees a few times and once at 400 degrees for 4 hours. The underside of the bricks were as cool as the other side of the pillow. I posted a more complete set of photos on the table forum just this afternoon.
