Table Finished - Time for her Maiden Voyage (pic heavy)

Wife bought me LGE for Christmas. Said it was up to me to come up with table. Carpentry skills are not my forte, so I found a local guy and set it up. Read just about every discussion in here and stole my favorite parts of all of the tables you gals and guys have posted on here. 72X30 with granite slab. Cabinet on one side for charcoal and wood, drawer underneath egg for setter, 4 drawers on right for tools. Drawer bottoms made out of lexanne (spelling?), as it is unbreakable and will never rot. 8 heavy duty casters. Electrical outlet on back and inside for looftlighter. Yet to run led lights under granite but will. Epoxied top to bottom prior to staining fir added weatherization. Still waiting for my pig bottle opener to arrive, otherwise she's ready to sail!!!

    Not sure where you're located but I would have a custom cover made for that. There's arguments for and against covers but where I am it's a must.

    Fayetteville,Ar. I will be getting cover, for now another couch cover I have. But with epoxy it actually will survive if I wanted, though I'm getting a cover. Just have to find someone to make one with a razorback on it!!!

    I'd be very very very very certain to not put a hot platesetter or grate or whatever in one of your drawers. Not sure what the melting temp of Lexan is offhand but...

    @HeavyG ;I think lexan is around the 320 degree Fahrenheit range.

    I'll be cooling looftlighter before it goes in drawers. Main reason I chose was to eliminate and water damage and fir easy cleanup.

    Great looking table. Only thing that I would have done different is to put a sliding drawer in the bottom of the left cabinet. It makes getting to the stuff in the back much easier. Be aware that if you do LEDs under the lip, they will shine outward a lot and be very noticeable to people sitting down in those chairs. You might want to test it out first before you install the whole thing.

  • That's a beauty!!!  For a minute there I was thinking I drank to much captain Morgan when I was looking at the drawers.  I never thought to use that for drawer bottoms.

    This my friends, is how a table is done!  Jealous......
  • Bert2015Bert2015 Posts: 48
    Got the table on a Wednesday and left the next day for spring break skiing. Had to suffer cooking on a gas Webber all week, so back home last night, ribs on this morn!!!
  • Bert2015Bert2015 Posts: 48
    Jarobbins, the actual base is 70X28, granite is 74X32 to give overhang. Only thing left to do is to secure the led lights under granite. 

    ToxArch, I agree on your point about the led lights, but I thought of that one too. When granite was cut I had them turn it over and cut me a 1/4" groove so that the led lights are recessed, thus truly shining down and no glare while I am sipping a cold one.
