My ideas came from taking very
good ideas from all you guys out there
many different web sites and a lot of late nights out in the garage
I put it together according to exactly what my specific needs were..I didn't need an inset marble cutting board but I need a adjustable 120 lamp to light up my cutting surface AND my grill grate cause I like to grill at night

And I know one thing its a hell of a lot easier building something out of generally straight newly bought wood than trying to build something out of reclaimed wood........esp for a perfectionist
I told my 11 y/o son that one day this would be his.......
I just love it

You can do what you like, but if it were me I would ditch that lighter fluid so it never got accidentally used. Especially if you ever get a ceramic. You can always go to Harbor Freight and get one of those weed burners to go with a propane tank to start the fire pit. It also will start your kamado for hot and fast cooks. Just my $0.02

 

----- ADDED----------

Great reuse of wood. Looks great and will serve you well for years.

That is one FINE table! Great job, especially considering your use of reclaimed wood. May I ask what you used to stain and preserve the wood?

Beautiful table! I hope to make my own someday soon, but I don't think I can come close to what you did. Really nice. Where did you get the wood?
