Putting LBGE in table

I am putting the final coats of spar urethane on my large table. How best to get the 'egg' into the table? Should I assemble the 'egg' by putting the lower unit into the table first and then put the top on, due to the reduced weight. Thanks to one and all on the great tips on finishing the table, it looks great, pictures will follow, once it is finished.

    Without help thats the best way. Even with help I would still take out the firebox and ring. Do Not try to lift with the bands. Looking forward to the pics.
  • Thanks FlaPoolman, that is what I thought. I didn't see any reason to assemble it outside of the table and then lift the whole thing up into the table. Definately a NO NO, lifting by the bands. From what I have read it looks like fire brick is the best to set it on, better than patio squares.

    I would also use the feet between the egg and firebrick. This is what my table looked like under the stone before using the feet.



    Hope this helps.
