I have a slight tendency to overbuild on occasion, but in this case, better overbuilt than collapsed. Apologies if it's dark; with a 16-month old son, I get most of the work done after his bedtime.
It's redwood with stainless steel screws. The Egg is a large.
Had to use 2x6 instead of 1x6, as that's all that was available. It's 38 1/2" high and about 76" long- a good height for me, since I'm tall. I don't have the tools necessary to cut down that granite countertop, salvaged from my father-in-law's kitchen remodel. The wife thinks the table's huge; I just think it looks good against the trumpet vine.
The shelf on top isn't actually attached at this point, though I may do that later. I think it's heavy enough to be stable on its own.
Remaining modifications- a bottle opener which I'll hopefully be picking up from BevMo this weekend, and then screens to surround the Egg's base and prevent my son from accidentally burning his hands.
