I have a Primavera 70 (pic below). Since the photo was take, I've added a hemisphere-shaped brick patio around it.
As of right now I prep on an old laminate counter top remnant from a kitchen renovation of a few years ago. I place it on a card table alongside the oven.
As sexy as this appears
, I would like to upgrade to something nicer.
I am considering stacking some wide pavers from Home Depot, and placing a granite counter top on top of them. No mortar...just stacked blocks with a counter top. The company next door to me sells granite remnants cheap, so it seemed like a good idea to go that route. Sexy + inexpensive.
My question - The patio is uncovered. Acid rain exists. Birds poop. Etc. Is having an exposed granite top smart? Or should I continue my makeshift, yet predominately acceptable card table operation. Or is there something better?
I don't want to break the bank, but I would like something aesthetically nice and functional. Any thoughts are appreciated.
