<p />I received my large BGE for Christmas and a few days later I found myself at the local building supply store getting lumber to build her a home. The next day I was cooking dinner. I must say I think the wife was a bit impressed.

  • sigmore,[p]I know...I'll have to take care of the off-color hub caps when I get around to painting my deck.

    Hasenfeffer, I like your forum handle. All that I can think of is a Bugs Bunny episode that I saw no less than 20 times.
    "I want my Hasenfeffahhhhh"[p]Schweet table, especially the rounded touch on the left there. What type of wood and dimensions did you use?[p]Of course your wife was impressed.[p]Scott[p]

    Nature Boy, It's his wife's jaw. He picked it up off the deck.

    Hey, that looks great. I'm adopting a medium from a fine fellow egger. I'm trying to design a small table that holds the medium with additional space to set the mini on. This we be an all summer long project. I don't have that kind of talent.[p]CWM

    It just doesn't quite look like a human jaw. I see nostrils, eye sockets, and creepy fangs....maybe even lips![p]Oh no. Could be getting off topic here.

    Hasenfeffer,[p]now wait just a damn minute you're sayin that you built that in one day!!!!!! now there are some woman-folk that visit this forum an iffin you keep this up i'm gonna call you the jones's.

    Great looking table..I also like the rounded extension on the end along with the kinda molded in handles....Iffin it was me I would put them litle green feetsies under the egg to allow some air circualtion between the egg and the stone...but thats just my opinion....Enjoy...[p]Wess

  • Borders, thanks for the kind words.[p]I used pressure treated..I think it is oak.
    The dims are (L) 77 x 26 x 33.
    I started out with the BGE plans, but made certain modifications along the way. This is really the first wood project that I've done so I am happy with the results.

  • Borders,[p]LOL- Your not far off... but her jaw fell when I just told her I was going to build it. Well ok, it was really just a laugh. Man, some women have no faith in their men.

    Hasenfeffer, I've had about all I can stand now. I just noticed the wheelbarrow handles on the driving end of your new table. You had better lock your doors and buy some dogs because Mark Backer or Stike or Stumbaby or even I may come and steal that puppy because now our wives are going to expect more from all of us slack slobs. We had them fooled till you came on the Green scene!! Welcome aboard, we'll bug the crap out of you. ;>)

  • Car Wash Mike,
    I didn't think I could do it either. All I used was a circular saw, jig, saw, drill and of coarse a measuring tape. It really wasn't that difficult. Once I got started it was hard to stop so I just kept going.

  • sigmore,
    LOL! I've already got the dog, but once you get past him make sure to bring a couple buddies cause this thing is heavy.[p]Thanks for the welcome. I can already tell there are a great bunch of folks on this forum.

  • Hasenfeffer, that is a great looking table![p]Your first wood working project? You need to take a three day trip to Las Vegas. I have two large ones! LOL![p]Welcome to the world of the Egg. It don't get no better.[p]LVM

  • eggor,
    Not sure if this will help at all but, I did finish it up the next day.LOL

  • LasVegasMac,[p]Checking on a plane ticket right now, LOL!
    ...Just have a few cold one's on ice and I'll be right over.

    Nice work! You cant help but cook great BBQ on a throne like yours. Wishing you good times with family and friends.[p]Clay Q

  • Hasenfeffer,[p]what's the red thing that the egg is on top of?[p]
  • PakakPakak Posts: 523
    dixie_flyer,[p]Looks like two things - two concrete stepping stones, or something similar.
  • dixie_flyer, Those are two 16" stepping stones.

  • Clay Q, thanks a bunch for the complement!

  • Hasenfeffer,
    Nice job. I've had my egg sitting on a flat walkway stone since July. I need some of your motivation to make a table.

  • egghead2004, Thanks!
    It takes a lot less of time and know-how than I ever thought. If you need any pointers just give a shout. I'll even send you a detailed product list.
