I've been working on a table for my large BGE and I thought I'd share a few pics of the progress. The table is made out of Red Oak and I got the plans from the Whiz. It took me a few weekends and I finally finished it yesterday. It's got 4 coats of polyurethane to keep it protected. This table is farking heavy without the egg!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, that's a new large egg in the table that I just picked up today. I've now got a a pair of eggs! I guess the other one will stay in it's nest. Thanks for looking.

Looks great! What are you going to seal/finish it with?

I've not had good luck with Oak for my outdoor applications-too much rain here and it stains black with mildew.

Very nice. My oak table looks like crap now because of weather, but oh well.

Too bad you don't have a Kreg Pocket Hole jig. You could have hid all of those screws on the stretchers. That Kreg jig is my favorite tool in the shop. It cuts a lot of time on projects like these.

I do have the Kreg jig and have used it many times on other projects. I guess I was just being lazy.:sad: I do plan on putting a cover over my table and it will be under my deck in back. Based on the comments I'm getting I'm a little concerned now about how the oak will handle the weather. I did consider using teak but I had a bunch of oak in my shop so I didn't need to go out and buy any wood. Do you keep yours covered at all?

Looks nice...let us know how it holds up in the weather.
What did you use for your cutting board, and is it one piece?

I use cypress wood for outside projects, but i do not know how available it would be in your area.It turns a nice shade of gray after several years if you do not put a sealer on it. I like the gray as it matches my beard.:biggrin:

Great job Don. I would suggest adding a few things though:
1) I would put a handle on the end opposite the wheel that could be both a handle for moving and a towel rack.
2) A good quality Spar finish.
3) A tool holding rack.
4) A holder for a led light.
5) Where's the farking bottle opener man? :wink:

I like the idea of a handle on the end that will double as towel holder. It will certainly help wheeling that thing around. Bottle openers coming, thanks to Gary. I've got quite a few coats of outdoor poly on this and will keep it covered when not in use, hopefully it will keep. Thanks
