Big Green Egg table

This is sort of "technique" related. I ordered a cypress table on eBay from "bge_tables4less"; $250 + $60 shipping. The factory tables are about $600. Today I unpacked it and assembled it, and WOW. If ever a product exceeded my expectations, this one did. Assembly took about 45 minutes, with me taking my time; I'm sure I could have knocked it off in half an hour.  He still has small tables; $200 + shipping.
 
It came as 4 pieces with hardware. Notice the beveled edges and the heavy bracing:
 

 

 
 
Fully assembled. THE REASON THE DECK LOOKS LIKE CRAP IS BECAUSE WE'RE TEARING IT DOWN AND REPLACING IT! So back off.

    Beautiful!  That is a steal of a deal on 4 wheels!
     
    From Big Egg, the wheels cost extra.
     
    Buy yourself a big marble square or square cutting board so that you don't stain the top.  It's too pretty!
     
    I had to use the 3 feet below mine because the hole in the "Made for the large Big Green Egg" hole was a little bit shy on diameter.

    Mosca, it really is a nice looking table, but don't you need some kind of protective coating since it's outdoors, or because it's cypress, it doesn't need it?

    Cypress contains cypresine, which naturally inhibits mold and mildew, and it is a dense tight-grained wood that will not crack or warp. If left alone it will easily last 20-40 years, weathering to a light gray. It can be cared for with an application of linseed oil every 6 months, or it can be stained and sealed.If stained and sealed, the instructions said to wait a few months first.
     
    Even though it will last, most sources nevertheless recommend covering it during the winter.
