I have two other guys who will help me lift the Big Joe in whenever I get ready to do that.

I'm still undecided if I'm going to stain it at all. I used pressure treated lumber, so this stuff would have to dry for 3-4 weeks before having stain applied. Sometime over the next two days I have to decide if I want to put the grill in the table or wait a month to stain it and then put it into production. Tough decision...

Tough decision indeed! At least you have other grills to use if you indeed decide to stain.

I build decks for a living so I am more familiar with treated wood than one needs to be, it will dry regardless of whether it gets wet or not. There is no need to keep it dry. The boards are able to get air movement on all sides now, you will be surprised how fast they dry out.

I have materials delivered on Fridays, by the time I start the deck on Monday the boards that are on the outside of the lumber pile are relatively dry. The ones in the middle are still saturated and much heavier.

So you think it would be OK to go ahead and stain this table? This table 'should' never get rained on so getting wet from weather is not a real issue but I would love to stain it with something like the Australian Timber Oil that Lowes sells...

Nice three people is a good idea. I only had two so we ended up lowering it into the hole on a heavy beach towel, then wriggled the towel out at the end. Just be careful.

I apologize, I misunderstood. I thought you were worried they wouldn't dry if they were exposed to weather.

You do need to wait a while to stain it, but that depends how wet the boards were to start with. Did you notice any moisture squeezing out of the boards when you cut or screwed them?

Good start so far.
My problem is, once I begin a project, I can't stop to take pics.
Just like the refurb on the Bandera I got. Pretty much finished up today but, no pics to show the progress from "before" to "after". No patience.

I noticed that once or twice when I was putting the decking screws in the 1 1/4 x 6 boards on the table top.
