My new table

Pics of my table that I just completed.  First, some background. I never planned to buy a BGE; it was never on my radar. I was on an email list from a bbq store near Lancaster PA, around four hours from where I live; less than a hour from my moms. I was visiting my mother, nothing was going on that Saturday, and the store was having an Eggfest. I saw 'free bbq food', so I went. Needless to say, I was blown away by the BGE, and versatility of it, and I needed one. Someone there mentioned that the units are brand new, used one time, then sold at discount. There were all sold; so I told the gentleman to put me on the waiting list; if anyone doesn't pay timely I will buy one. Two weeks later I rcvd a call, and was asked if I was still interested. I paid at the moment, and the next month went to go pick it up, fully assembled. Sweet deal. 

Poking around this sight and others, I saw all the beautiful tables that were made, and I had to have one. So I patently waited for the right deal on a piece of granite. Over the winter I procured a 3x5 piece of granite for $100 from CL. There was a hole for an umbrella in the center. I took it to the local granite shop and got the 21" hole cut, at the edge of the  umbrella hole for $100. The disk that was removed was cleaned up, and I use it as a heat shield under the table nest. I built a cardboard template of the complete granite, and just winged my plans from there, using a picture of a egg table as a general reference. I've never built anything like this before. My neighbor has a wood shop and tools that I used for the initial build of the frame. Enjoy the pictures. And does anyone have any recommendation for a cover?  This won't get rained on, but I'd like to keep it clean. 

Finished product:

The drawer just slides on a piece of pressure treated lumber that I screwed down.

    I think only you can see them. I am sure it has to be a setting wherever you are hosting these at. Hopefully you can get it sorted out.
