After nine months of "Egging" 1-3 times a week I finally felt I was ready to design a table. I live in Northern Virginia so cedar and Redwood are not easy to come by so I decided to use non-treated pine from Home Depot. I wanted a solid, sturdy top so I edge-joined 2 x 12s (thanks to my friend Steve!) for a top that measures 71 x 31 inches. After using an Egg with side tables I decided I wanted plenty of table space when cooking.
I started with the basic Egg table plans and then looked at all the table design pics on the Naked Whiz site to collect ideas. The result is a mixture of several styles, The table top is shifted to the right to create an overhang. I used the two-tier swing rack from Ceramic Grill Works and wanted to make sure I had table under the top rack when I swing it out. The overhang provides a nice place to hang tools and I added a single hook in the center to hang a hot grate until it is cool enough to place underneath. I originally had planned on a single shelf but once I built the table legs I realized I could get one more shelf at the very bottom for additional storage. The right leg has brackets to hold an umbrella on the back side of table. During construction all wood joints were glued as well screwed together. The table is finished with three coats of exterior grade polyurethane.
I cooked an 8 lb. pork shoulder overnight to break it in.
