  • Reclaimed Cypress table

    Finally got around to posting pics of my table I finished earlier in the year. Seeing the pics of other tables was invaluable, and I was able to come up with a design to make my own.

    I utilized reclaimed LA cypress that is close to 100 years old, a chunk of Black Amazon granite from our kitchen island cook top cutout, and a portion of a stainless table. My in-laws were kind enough to purchase the Egg for us as a Christmas gift, and the cypress and stainless came from my father. It was a really fun project (short of the splinters and about a thousand old rusty nails I had to pull, and a few sets of planer knives ruined on those I missed) that enabled me to bring materials together from both my wife's and my family.

    Joinery is mortise and tenon, with pocket hole screws and lots of Titebond III, with no visible fasteners. All stainless casters and hooks from McMaster-Carr. Worm holes filled with boat making epoxy, and finished with 5-6 coats of hand rubbed spar urethane.

    Enough talk - everyone likes pics so here you go. Hopefully someone can gain an idea or two from mine like those so many I pilfered from others. Cheers.

  • Re: BBQ GURU pros & cons

    Not trying to hijack this thread, but as another option you can try a HeaterMeter. Not sure how technical you are, but I built one this weekend in 3-4 hours. After 2 uses I love it. It's based on a Raspberry Pi, and was a really fun project. It has ports for 4 temp probes (1 Pit, 3 Food), and full wireless capability. I'm not selling them, just a satisfied customer.
