Granite Top for Egg Nest

edited 4:07AM in EGG Table Forum
I am nearing completion of the base of my new egg nest. Some final assembly and staining and I will be ready to add a top. I like what I see as far as granite tops are concerned.
Living in southeast Michigan we get our fair share of snow and I do not always get around to putting a cover back on.
Are there any special considerations when adding a granite top?
How do you secure it?
Do you need to use a exterior mortar to butter the bottom to keep moisture from getting in through the bottom or anything else?
Am I worrying too much?

    I used 100 percent silicone, mold resistant one,to install one. Just a few dabs will do it. I leave it uncovered all year round. A cover would be great but i haven't found one to fit my table.

    Here's mine. Used dabs of silicone. I'm in Oklahoma and leave it uncovered because it looks so good. Do you think I need the three feet on the granite base?

    Based on what I read on the Naked Whiz site, it would be a good idea to add the feet. .
    Nice looking table. I agree the granite looks good. I was thinking of just doing a tile top til I saw fine examples like yours.

  • My son and I put the feet underneath it this weekend so it should be good to go.
  • Woody,

    Try and get Canadian granite. It's already acclimatized. :laugh:

    My granite guy said to just run a bead of caulk around the outside after the top is installed to hold in place.
