My New Table (with pics) and A Question

After researching ideas and tips on this forum, I am now the proud owner of a new custom table for my large BGE. Due to a severe disparity between my high standards and low (carpentry) skills, I had a local handyman build it for me. Ignore the side shelves, I snapped this picture before I had a chance to take those off. Question: the BGE sits on firepit bricks, but to be safe I wanted to add the small "feet" to allow for airflow. All my dealer had were three of these small feet, which they gave me for free. Are these enough to allow adequate airflow, and will three support the weight of the egg?

    Three is the magic number. I put mine at the 12,4 and 8 o'clock position. That way they do not get in the way of the bottom draft slider.

    That's all I got with mine (large) but I never bothered to put them under. I haven't looked at the wood under my paver though and I learned I may need the airgap. Good looking table and welcome aboard!

    BGE has a new Table nest that works much better than the feet. The egg sits in the table nest very solid and gives it plenty of air flow. Just a question;  why the egg mate shelves? Looks like you can't fold them down.
  • The feet are fine but the small table nest is just a bit more stable. Raised the egg about 2" overall.
    But from the pics you should be fine as long as your not rolling the table around much.
