After finally waiting for ever to jump on the Egg bandwagon, I bought a new large Egg. Before I picked it up, I made a new table out of cedar with a recessed paver and inset granite top. After scouring the internet for inspiration and some basic measurements I settled on a custom version based off measurements from the original green egg tables and from Nakedwhiz. In both cases, the distance from table top to egg shelf was 15" so I built the table accordingly. The one thing I didn't realize is that the eggs are no longer being shipped with the ceramic feet which turns out is a pre-requisite for being able to open the dome.
I tried to talk to the local dealer and the Egg headquarters and both said feet were no longer available. So, now I've got to come up with about 3/4" of a spacer to prevent dome interference with table top. A little frustrated to invest so much money and time into something and then not even be able to fully open the lid! Of course I can pay another $30 to buy a table nest that they have so conveniently added to their accessories list now.
So...hopefully this can prevent others from making the same mistake. If you're buying a new egg (or trying to not use the feet) the measurement needs to be about 14 1/4" from table top to paver top in order for large egg to fit properly.
