I have designed a table for the XL egg I bought yesterday. I am no expert at google sketchup or carpentry but here is what I came up with:
Google Sketchup plans:
Pictures for those who dont have the free software:
The angled sections under the top table are drawers. The back of the table has a full length 1x6 supporting it, but on the front it only has the section between the legs strongly supported. I did strengthen the table behind the drawers to solidify that side 1x6 but I fear that the table is lacking support on the front exterior edges and that I should forget the drawer Idea. I dont want to be telling people not to lean on the table front corners. Should I go with my gut feeling and forget about the drawers and feel safe about my table or is this design strong enough?
I would of loved to hide my ash tool, grid cleaner, looftlighter and long tools in the drawers instead of hanging them (I will use a tarp and tarping a bbq with stuff hanging on the sides is a pain)
I will use IPE wood (very strong)
I will use Quikrete countertop mix and make a one section 2 inch top slab (3 inch concrete in front and back of the egg with rebar, is that sufficient?)
I will use the egg nest for table from BGE, elevating the egg 2 inches from table.
The bottom front section of the table is on hinges and will be used for storage (just flip open). The woo2 fits nicely in there.
I will hang some grills under the table sides using SS hooks.
Table will be on casters
