    So I decided rather than spend a small fortune on a custom table that I would attempt to make one myself.  I saw tons of pictures online and used a mix of a few to come up with my own idea.  I still need to stain it but it pretty much came out the way I wanted.

    Sweet looking table. Do you have any type of casters under it so you can move it around a bit?

    Thanks all.  I actually have no experience with Kitchens or Cabinetry.  This was just something I put together after looking at various pictures online and coming up with a plan.  The top is made from quartz.  It is more dense than regular granite and slightly better for outside (or so I am told). 

    I decided not to put it on casters for a couple of reasons:
    • they looked a bit flimsy
    • I couldnt find any that would fit properly on the 4x4s
    • Wasn't really planning on moving it a whole lot. 
    All that I need do now is stain it and build a small shelf for the egg.  Should get that knocked out tomorrow.
  5. Egging is fantastic. I built a rustic Mexican nest and shelter for my large egg. Custom designed and built over a couple of days. I had the galvanized countertop fabricated at a metal shop. 3/4" plywood underneath.  The back wrought iron is an old door from a friend's condo, and I glued (liquid nails) random spanish tiles on it, and added the cheesy jalapeno string of lights. I placed a couple of painted cement pavers under the egg. I live in Miami so lots of rain in the summer, so I added a galvanized corrugated lean-to top, outdoor lighting (I do electrical) and added a couple of spotlights to point to the neighboring hot tub. Yes, Florida is a great place to live!

    I do pork ribs: 3-1-1/2hr more or less at 225 degrees. I use John Henry Pecan Rub. Spray 1/2 hr intervals with 50/50 apple cider/water. Pecan wood for smoke. Wrap in foil with honey rubdown for 1 hr. than 1/2 hour w/o foil. Electric knife. They rock! As does the Egg.

    Nice. I ordered a 30" X 60" piece of beautiful granite for my Egg tabletop, then cancelled when they quoted $790.00. So I built it out of PT an put a cedar top on, I like it.

    Very very nice. You could run a business out of that!
  8. Very nice build. I need to get my lazy butt out in the shop and build my table. My nest is about to fall apart. I already have the cedar I plan on using.

    Happy smoken.
