    Smoke-N-Smirk!,[p]Great piece of work and beautiful job! I have been meaning to build or have built a table for my large Egg and just haven't gotten around to it. I envy all of you folks when you show off the carpentry skills I lack.[p]Based on some posts I've seen from others who built their own tables, I'd be a bit concerned about setting your Egg right on that fine ceramic tile work. Others have reported the Egg bottoms getting hot enough to scorch decking. Over time the heat may compromise the adhesive causing the tiles to come loose. Using Humpty's little ceramic "feet" to provide a small air gap may save you some grief down the road. [p]Just a thought,[p]K~G

  • Smoke-N-Smirk!,
    Wow, looks like a lot of time and thought went into that. I am not only impressed but jealous as well. Nice job![p]Matt.

    You will be the talk of the forum for a long time. Hope you have the plans ready to post every one will be wanting them.
    Great Job!!!!

  • KennyG,
    You nailed it on the head regarding the feet. I cracked (actually, exploded may be a more accurate term) both a couple of porcelain tiles, as well as cracked a 1.5" thick stone. This was even with me using the feet. I ended up getting a Ceramic Kiln Shelf that finally resolved my problem. At a minimum I would recommend using the feet, to keep the air moving. You may also want to keep a 1" or so layer of ash on the bottom of the egg. This seems to do a better job than anything of insulating the heat from the bottom. [p]I would hate to see such a fine piece of work get damaged. What a great table! The drawers are an awesome idea! Congratulations![p]- Mike

  • Smoke-N-Smirk!, THAT IS MAGNIFICENT -HIGH quality wormanship & it shows how proud you are to own a BGE.

  • Smoke-N-Smirk!,[p]I sure like the looks of that table. Please share the plans and detaled instructions. Nice job

    What a beautiful table! I love the drawer idea. How long did it take you to build?[p]~nikki

  • Chas,
    I Do not have any plans for the table, just kind of winged-it. If the interest is there, I can come up with some basic plans.

    Great looking table! Looks like you have the new spring assist hinge. How did you provide clearance for the hinge on the back of the egg? I have been wanting to put the new hinge on my large egg, but haven't had the nerve to cut up my table.[p]
