    Nice! I like that look.

    Those appear to be fairly small diameter casters. How well do they roll over your bricks?

    It rolls ok, I wanted it to have low profile almost hidden casters and also I dont move it around much. 
  • Great looking unit.  Should be very low maintenance as well.  Did you do the concrete top yourself?

    Nice I am installing 50 sq ft of concrete counters in my kitchen in the next week or so. Will use leftover forms for an egg table. Hard to beat concrete.

  • Looks great! What did you use for the egg cutout when you cast it?

    I used insulation foam. First rough cut circle then sanded down and used clear packing tape along edge to make smooth. Then attached to mold using silicone caulk. After cured it easily punched out after removed from mold.

    Can you give a link or pictures on how you made the top? One of the best looking ones I've seen

    Is that foam insulation for the BGE cut out? What size hole did you leave for the BGE?

    Did you leave the form board under the cement?  

    Thanks for the pictures I am going to do this on my stand.

    Yes it was foam insalation. I rough cut at around 21.25" then sanded it down to 21" dia.

    Not sure what you mean about foam board under cement?. If you mean did I used foam for blocking inside counter top no i didnt not. I reinforced it with rebar. foam was just used to mold the hole then I broke it out after it cured.

    go for it! please post when youre done love to see it!
  • So the bottom form board is now integral to the egg table?

  • He meant FORM board not FOAM. The layer that created your base.

    oh apologies misread that, no the board was for mold only. after curing I flipped countertop over so bottom surface in mold is top and and pulled out bottom board.
