  • I just received a new large Green Egg for Father's Day.
    I am so excited I am about to jump out of my skin.
    My first project is to build a table. My goal is to build a fairly simple / fine quality table that i can enjoy for many years. I am hoping someone will share building plans and I will gladly reciptrocate whem my project is finished. I will likely build with wood, however, I am open to the idea building a fine quality table with steel or aluminum frame. Open to all ideas.

    The Naked Whiz site has dimensions and plans for the basic table that you see often. Many are modified to suit personal needs and taste. There is also a gallery on that site with pics of literally hundreds of tables.
    If you decide to build out of wood your choice of material is somewhat dependant on where you are located.
    Cypress is probably the #1 choice, but it is not readily available except in the deep south. Western cedar, redwood, white [eastern] cedar are also popular. Treated pine [decking material] is not a good choice.

    Check with local lumber yards [not big box stores] to find out what is available for outdoor furnitue in your area.

    I highly reccomend a marine spar varnish finish, especially if you want a fine quality look. It takes more time in the beginning, but it is worth the effort.
    Let me know if you have any questions, I will be glad to help. E-mail if you wish :)

  • Thanks Capt Frank.
    I will check out Naked Wiz tonight when I get home.
    For some reason my work computer has the Naked Wiz site blocked. Part of my brain tells me to take time and build a fine table to admire for years to come.
    The Egghead part of my brain tells me to hurry up and start cooking. We can always build the table next winter. Papa Egghead
  • Very nice
  • I'm in your spot, and had a blast this morning with the tons of photos folks sent in to Naked Whiz's site. His plans have inspired many.

    I can't help but laugh, though, when you write "For some reason my work computer has the Naked Wiz site blocked." C'mon, wouldn't you think that the folks running your corporate computer system would block employee access to sites that have "naked", much less "naked" and "whiz", in them?

    Anyway, I look forward to what you come up with. All the best.

    What type of wood and stain did you use?
  • Im building a cable and need to know the dimensions of the XL Egg. I havent purchsed it yet so I cant measure it. Can ayone git me the diameter of the outside of the egg at the bottom and the opening and the distance from the botom and the opening?

    great looking table.

  • So how has the table worked for you? I'm a newbie and want to build my own that 1" marble you have the egg sitting on, and as an inlay on the table top?
