Egg Table Finish

Getting ready to pick up my new egg soon and figured that I would have the table built, ready and waiting for the new arrival. I am at the point now for finishing the table and wondering what other eggers do? The table will be sitting on the deck outside during the summer months and when not in use will be covered.

Thinking of using either something like Thompson's Water Seal or an outdoor poly.

What are your thoughts? Thanks

    From personal experience and from reading a bit on the subject, Thompson's is the pits. Go with a good quality spar or marine finish.

    What dubah said

    Covering the table is good but I would get something with superior UV protection for the times when the table is not covered. Lots of products out there - wish I could tell you what works best.

    Another perspective: I decided to wait when I bought mine and I'm glad I did. My LBGE sat on a paver for six months before I decided what I wanted to do, which was to build a wood- and block-framed stucco cabinet. I am glad I didn't buy a nest or a table right away, obviously.

    Point is: you'll make better decisions after you have egged for awhile - whether it's accessories or egg housing! JMO. Good luck.
