Not entirely done… As you can see the Egg isn’t in there yet and it will be sporting a nice set of very heavy duty wheels soon. (The table has to weigh over 100-150lbs easy!)
In any case I’ve seen a lot of BGE tables out there but not I wanted to adjust the original plans a bit and build something of my own design. Nothing fancy but has the inlayed slate that I notched the Cumaru planking to fit in. Legs are 2 7/8” Ipe posts and weigh a friggen ton. The idea was to use wood that would withstand the lovely 100+ degree summer days and various rain storms we get here in the south. It’s all sealed with Watco outdoor oil finish which I’ve not used before so I hope it holds up. Unfortunately my router bit got away from me a bit while cutting the circle so there’s a little dip here and there but over all I’m pretty happy with it. I’ll say this, if a tornado ever blew through here this thing would be standing strong next to my ruined house, it’s that solid.
