Got a custom built Egg Table but no stone or brick to set on. Any suggestions???

  • If your table is made of Ipe you're good to go! Otherwise...

    Small Medium or Large Eggs: 16" x 16" x 1-1/2"(min) concrete paver/fire brick
    XL: 24" x 24" x 1-1/2"(min) concrete paver/fire brick

    You can either stand it on the three feet that came with the EGG, or place it on a 6 inch patio block.

    Patio blocks are cheap enough.

  • If you're looking for general alternatives, stacked granite tile will work. Can't stress enough, 1-1/2" thick minimum though.

  • @hoppy The feet directly in contact with lumber is a no-go.

    I never gave it a second thought. I have had mine sitting on the three feet for the past five years in my table.

    No problem yet...... but I have a patio block that I can swap them out with.

    Thanks for the info.

    Your best bet is firebricks with feet. Feet help everything(air circulation). No thin tiles. If not firebricks use a paverstone.
    I grill therefore I am.....not hungy.
