I would like one of those DeWalt planers. If I had known you were going to buy one, I would have bought out the store's stock. grin

Not that i've been following this thread too closely (man you guys post alot eek ), but i may have a project upcoming.

We're going to buy a Big Green Egg tomorrow and are trying to decide whether to purchase the $700 pre-built table or to build our own. I'm working out the cost of wood but it will depend on whether we use basic materials or something more interesting (e.g. pine 2x4 framing or cedar framing, generic deck board surface or an "exotic" species for a surface, etc.).

This is a fairly simple project by woodworking standards, but i don't have a workshop, just a garage that needs to have the cars backed out and a bunch of things tarped over before i can do any dusty ripping on the table saw. Plus i don't have use of the garage for this activity for much more than a day or two (i could do the finishing/staining work in the basement though).

Here's an idea of the table from the store.
http://www.biggreenegg.com/eggcessories/nests-tables-mates-shelves/long-table-for-egg/

A few other table ideas:

Some of the more interesting surfaces we would consider for the main table top:

http://www.windsorplywood.com/Walnut_Finishing_Lumber.aspx

Anyone have any thoughts to add?
Should we buy or build? (time alotment to build may be a factor and notably we cannot use the new bbq until the table is together)

On another note, some of you may know this website but i just came across it.
GREAT tips!
I wish i had known this before i first tried to stain a maple table for the wine cellar.

Chess, you will love your egg. My biggest regret was not buying one before I left my last job. (We were a BGE dealer) Try to get them to throw in an extra gasket, as a high percentage of people will over-fire the egg within the first year. The gasket doesn't survive.......

Is that the wool fibre gasket or the high temperature option?
I've read there are two (one is an 'upgrade').

I certainly hope i don't get the egg up to too high a temperature. After all, i DO want to cook on it, not process iron ore.
