        Well It is finally warm enough over night in MN for me to stain my table! I had to take the top off and the kamado out to do it.

        I just need to touch up a few spots and stain one more board in the back and she will be all done. I will post some more pics once I add the plate setter and the kamado back into the table.

        I am also going to add this towel rack I made in the shop and a few more hooks the the from posts to hold a few utensils. I am also making a holder for my plate setter to be hung off the right side of the table. I think I am going to make that out of thin rebar using a some heat and a vice.

        I guess I never updated this after I put he stain on my table. I went with Cabot Jarrah Brown stain. This stuff should hold up for a long time. I love the dark color too.

          The Cabot stuff is great! I just bought a gallon to reapply for my landing at the lake house. Not cheap, but it definitely is worth the price!

          And I also use the jarrah brown! Your table looks great!
