Personally, I would put exactly on your table as you do to your fence. If you're looking for suggestions, I've had great luck with the Thompson's silicone deck and fence stuff I bought at HD several years ago. I think it's all been replaced with Behr at that chain now. Check for food safty too.

I recommend going with a marine varnish such as "Heilsman," you can get it at lowes or home depot, a bit expensive BUT if you use poly you will be wasteing your money because it will flake and peel quickly, then you get to sand it down and apply the marine varnish anyway, so skip the poly. Put it right to it too, use the whole can, you won't regret it and most importantly, let it cure long enough. Put it in a warm place for a week or two so it can dry and set up enough, once cured put it to good use! best of luck, ~Anthony

Here's the money shot with my antique Kamado:

I'd rather be smoking on my 1990 Imperial Kamado...the predecessor to the BGE.
I am thinking of doing a table similar to this. What did the table cost you to build? That includes the stain finish.

Good looking table. I used Olympia brand on a cedar fence it's been going on three years and still looks good.

Can you use poly?

Sure. If you want the finish to crack from temp variations.

The olympia stain and sealer in one is a play on words......all exterior stains have that property.

I hope you used the oil based product.

My wife ordered it for my Christmas present. I've been talking about build a table for over a year, but work too much to find the time (proof of that is that just now assembling this table 6 weeks after Christmas). I think the table and shipping was around $600 and the tile, stain and brush another $30.

Keep in mind that this table is cedar. I bet you could build the one on naked whiz's website out of treated pine for 1/2 what this cost with 30 manhours of labor.

It shouldn't take more than $100 to build a table and more than 4 to 6 hrs to build. It could actually come out cheaper if you buy the scraps at Home Depot.

These are the plans I used I just changed them up a little.
