Thanks everyone Very useful info - glad to be steered away from the pressure treated. Had same concerns particularly with the copper treatment - but saw online tables made of it and wondered about it just in case since cost is cheap and pressure treated lasts long.
Never really thought about it - but hey - two tone might look great! Maybe I'll use the spruce for the frames and legs and then use cedar for the top! Either way you guys have given me some great options!
If money was no object - I'd skip borrowing my friend’s tools, go to a custom woodworking shop, pick a really different looking exotic wood, pay the guy to make the table, round the edges and add a few mods, varnish it and then deliver it to my house, hell, and maybe even put the egg in it Unfortunately, like many - I'm stuck with choosing the cheapest yet most durable and decent looking option. If I get 5 years out of it maybe I can always build a nicer one down the road when I win the lottery
