New LBGE table. Treated pine.

Newbie here. Bought a LBGE this past weekend and built my table the weekend before. Looking for recommendations on what kind of stain to use.

    Welcome, and very nice table build!  Can't help with the stain question but others will chime in.

  • Awesome table design.  I might have to steal that when I rebuild mine.  I used a Minwax natural stain on cedar to just bring out the wood grain.  Then finished it with several coats of spar urethane.  I think 4 coats on top and three on the underside.

    Thanks BizGreenEgg! I like and want to keep the natural look so that may be the way I go. I had a difficult space to deal with to please the wife so I had to go with a pretty unique design. Turned out great, there is even a can light that almost lines up perfect with the cooking surface! Here are more pics from engineering standpoint..

    What ever you decide to put on it make sure the wood is dry.  Treated wood is wet treated and if you put any sort of finish on it before it drys it will pop off as the moisture is drawn out of the wood.

    It does look great.  I love the table space.

  • I use sikkens door and window for these outdoor projects. It's great stuff and doesn't require the maintenance that spar urethane requires.
