Don't know if the picture will show on this thing. We put a cedar shingle roof over the Egg and made it high enough for the smoke and heat to circulate out

    I am just finishing up a similarly designed table that fully encloses the bottom half of the egg, like this one does.  I've seen posts about tables, etc catching on fire.  My egg will sit on a 2" granite slab 12.5" below the top and in a 26.25" hole, as recommended.  The whoe thing is constructed of plywood, 2x4s, 4x4s and trim wood.  All is stained an varnished.  Should we be concerned about fire b/c of not enough ventilation?

    Fantastic setup, and you've given me some ideas...

    Heck of a hut! It's hard to tell from the photo, is the roof deep enough to keep you dry or just the egg?

    There's just enough of an overhang to keep me dry if the wind isn't blowing the rain in.
