Metal BGE table

edited January 2012 in EGG Table Forum
Didn't have a lot of space to work with and didn't want a big table to try and keep clean.  I built this out of 1 1/4" square tubing and 1 1/4" angle iron. The top is a custom made slab of granite dropped into an angle iron frame and the two bottom shelves are plywood.  It's really all the table I need and it makes it easy to move the egg to the other side of the patio when the wind changes. I plan on putting casters on the table too. image

    Great idea and you could actually have another on the other side if needed.

  • Very Very Nice. Like Gato said, you could have another for the other side. I love the size. It doesn't take up a lot of room but gives you lots of room for things. Is there angle iron on the curved side of the table as well,or is it sitting on just 3 sides of the table?

  • i like it. wheels would make it awesome!

  • OP- be careful when you add the casters...you don't want to raise the table to a height where it is higher than the bottom half of the egg...at least I wouldn't want that.

  • And make sure those casters have a brake. maybe he could trim the legs on the table to allow for the height of the casters, I hear you Quinn, to high would not be practical.

    I did curve a piece of angle iron for the egg side.  I just cut the angle about every 1/2" and bent it around a pattern I had made for it and welded it up.  I made a pattern out of plywood that just sat in side the frame and took it to the granite fabricator.

    I will definitely cut the legs off a little before I install the casters. I just wish I had put the bottom shelf a little higher.  I forgot to mention that the whole table with the granite was less than $130.00.

  • I love that design. I have a small deck off the back of the house, so a larger table for the egg and then the patio table with 6 chairs gets way to crowded, This would be perfect. Did you just wing it as far as measurements or did you have plans from someone. I don't have a welder but maybe I could make it out of 2x4 fir, that I have kicking around. Metal would last a lot longer. You have got me really wanting to do something now. :-\"

  • What is the measurements of the table top?

    That is a scoop from bge. I love mine. It actually has a lip on the underside that lets it rest in the bottom vent perfectly. The just use the ash tool and clean it out.

    Here is the drawing of the plan I came up with.  If I was to do it again I would have the legs come straight down. It was a real bear getting the bottom shelves in because of the taper of the legs.image

  • Sweet thanks for sharing this. Got to have one. It makes so much sense for a smaller area. Thanks again
