Here (I hope) is an image of a cabinet I built for my large BGE.

    Al, great looking table. Mind if I ask what your materials cost was? What is the top surface made of?

  • Nice work - my bride would want it in her kitchen
  • The top was the single most expensive component, $200.00. It is man made that looks like granite. I have cooked 6 meals since making the cabinet. The top gets warm but no problems.

    Materials for the base was around another $200.00. The support members are 2 X 4's, shelves are plywood. the face frame, doors and drawer fronts are Alder. The drawers have full extension slides, insides are eastern red cedar

    Originally, there were panels on each side (bottom shelf above big drawer) which made for nice storage but on the first outing I noticed the panels were warmer than I wanted, so I removed them which created a open space which is good for air flow.

    Biggest challenge was how to move 300 pounds of BGE and wood. I solved this problem by building a platform out of plywood and pine. I had 14 small casters in my inventory so I installed 5 on each end and 4 in the middle.

    I should have taken pictures alone the way, but did not. the construction is unique in that I sorta knew what I wanted it to look like and I figured out the construction details as I went along.

    It was not a weekend project as every board had to be primed and then painted.
  • That isn't a table or a cabinet....that's a piece of furniture. Outstanding job!!!!!!
  • Wow Al, very nice.
  • I love your Big Green Egg setup. Can you tell me how to post a picture of mine? I have been unable to find any instructions on how to do it. Thanks.
  • Below is information from Help/frequently asked questions. Hope this helps.

    How do I include a photo in my post?

    Posting a photo to EggHeadForum isn't all that hard, but you have to understand a few things first.

    1.The photo is not uploaded to the EggHeadForum server. You have to find a place for it.
    2.The photo has to be placed on a server on the Internet. It cannot be on your PC in your home.
    3.The photo has to be placed on a server that will allow our EggHeadForum web pages to link to it. This is known as remote linking or direct linking. If the server doesn't allow other webpages to link to photos on it, then the photo won't show up in your post.
    Put the image url between bbcode "img" tags (you can use the "Img" button above the post window to start and end the tag).

    That is, click the "Img" button, paste the url to your photo, which must already be uploaded to the Internet (e.g. via Photobucket), then click the "Img" button again to close the image tag. You can reference as many images as you like in a post using this method.
