Table Building Question

edited September 2011 in EGGtoberfest
I'm building a table based on plans from The Naked Whiz web site and questioning which side of the table I should put the BGE.  The plans have it on the right but I'm thinking about putting it on the left because I'm right handed.  I've seen people place them both ways and not sure if it really matters.  Is there a special reason to have it on the right?  I'm using option B for the lower shelf which has the stone (which the BGE sits on) off set to one side of the table, so I can't just flip it around if I don't like it. 

Thanks for the help.


  • its a personal preference thing.  don't put it in the middle.  if you put it in the middle you won't have space for your second egg.

    seriously, you may decide to get a second egg one day so make sure it is big enough to accommodate egg numero dos.

    personal preference or because of location

  • Dominic, the solution is obviously to make the table very wide.  Then you can put it in the middle.  When you get your second egg, it goes on one side.  When you get your third egg, it goes on the other....  :))

  • Thanks for the help, and thanks Whiz for the plans.  I guess the bottom line is you can never have to many eggs!
  • Not knowing if the table you are building has doors or anything that would distinguish a front and back, but a simple table could just be rotated 180* and turn the egg 180* and you convert from a right to left hand table or vice versa. Just my thought as I read your post.  Jer
  • Jer_inva, in my table plans if you pick option A, you can do just that.  Rotate the table and the Egg and you can have the Egg on one side or the other.  The only difference would be which end the wheels were on.  However, if you choose option b, the table has a front and a back because the slate under the Egg extends forward all the way to the front edge of the bottom shelf so that there is no exposed wood in front of the Egg's lower vent.
