BASIC Egg Table

Hi Gang, I see you all have built some beautiful tables!  I am not nearly as talented with the carpentry skills, but I was still able to build a very basic table myself earlier this fall with just a skill saw and a drill.  It's not pretty, but it sure works great, and we love it!  SO much better than the old side tables we had.  So if anyone was questioning whether or not they can do one of these projects on their own... if I can do it, anyone can.

Full instructions? See my blog: http://winnipeggheads.com/2012/10/13/building-a-big-green-egg-table/

  • Don't sell yourself short. You have good craftsmanship. Fasteners in a straight line and evenly spaced, boards look flush or even with other boards. You did a great job!

    I second the later half of your comment, you can never plan too much.

  • I liked your basic table and built one like it with the exception of using the table nest.  My dealer told me that I didn't need to use any type of stone below the egg if I used the table nest.  Does anyone have any comment about that?

  • Nice Table!

    You might get some blistering of the finish if you're running full blast for pizzas for a long period of time, but I don't think there's a serious fire risk.  Then again, your egg dealer wants to sell you a nest and he ain't the underwriter on your homeowners.  Better safe than sorry. I'd put some thin ceramic tiles under there just to play it safe.  That's just me, and I have a big brown spot under my egg that I didn't think I'd get.

    I called my dealer to see if he had the table nest. I was going to buy them but he said the stone is better than the table nest. He says " I have them but your better off just using a landscaping stone". Personally I don't know but that is what he said.

    I'm new to BGE and I've only used it twice. The 18"x18" ceramic floor tile I put under the egg cracked after the first time firing up my LBGE. I picked up a 16"x16" concrete stepping stone from Home Depot and painted it hunter green to match the egg. We'll see how that holds up.

    You need an air gap between the bottom of the egg and the tile under it.  The little green feet or something.  Otherwise they get way hotter.  They tile or brick still could crack, but much less likely.
