Here's my attempt at a BGE table

First post on the site so I thought I would show my new table.  Pretty basic but it seems to be working ok.   Enjoy.

  • LOVE it!!!.....Question....seems like everyone puts wheels on their tables....I do plan to put mine under my back porch....it will be in only one spot(was the plan anyway)....do I need wheels so that I can roll it out from under my porch?.......I would have to build some type of extension and move a bush????

    Thanks for any advice.....
  • Very nice, did you use plans or just wing it?

    Very Cool!  That's my next Egg Project.  I like the 4 x 4 legs.

    @ AthensM50 - If you don't put wheels on it will be a pain to move if you need to in the future (140 lb Egg + 100+ pounds of wood = pain).  Let's face you will move it at some point.  It will be a lot easier if you incorporate wheels in original design rather than after the fact.  you could put whells on one side like the Naked Whiz plans (http://www.nakedwhiz.com/TableGallery/tables.htm)

    Rizzo - what did you do to suspend the storage bin?  I might add that to mine.

    The ash notch is cool and functional, but it looks weird.  Just my initial reaction.

    I wonder about the need for the notch ... without it, there is plenty of room for a dustpan, which is what I use?

    The ash notch does look a bit strange but the thought is to attached a plastic bin (siding drawer) underneath the notch thus allowing easier access to clean and storage the ash out of the egg.  As you can see, I have not gotten to this portion of the project yet.  Does look a little strange though but it has been very functional .   <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

     For the question about on the plan; used something I found on the internet and modified with 4x4 leg and the notch. 

    As someone else has mentioned, the wheels are extremely nice if you need to move it.  Haven't done so yet but I bet the day will come soon.

    The initial reason I put wheels on mine was to make moving it easier on the patio, just so I could move it closer to the house after I was done cooking.

    However after having it for a while, I realized moving the Egg to either catch more airflow, or block airflow has been pretty valuable.  If I'm doing a pizza or steak cook where I want real high temps I can put in directly facing the wind.  If I'm going low and slow and I have 30mph winds (like a few weekends ago), I can turn it 90 degrees from the wind or completely away to make temp control easier.  Not sure if others do this, but it is a nice option.

    Nicely done, Rizzo. I've been putting off building a table for awhile knowing we were going to move soon....well now that's this week. So probably after the holidays, I'll be starting mine. Hope it turns out as well as yours.
