    There is no doubt the 2" space provided by a table nest will be OK from a heat perspective, BUT, any ash that falls out will not care if it falls 2" or 2'.... Still a strong fire possibility...
    A fire "proof" surface under the nest is the best solution. 
    I have a table nest with tile under the egg.

    Skookum looking table, if you can find a piece of stainless steel or even black metal if you don't want the higher profile of a paver. Even a a couple of loose lay 16"X16" dark tile, matching your top would do. They do not have to be cemented, the egg weight will keep them in place.

    When I got sick of waiting for the table nest I ordered from BGE direct to show up I used paving stones.

    It works fine and I think it looks ok too.

    Still waiting for the table nest by the way....

    If you have the cut out piece of granite, that would look cool under it. Nice table, by the way !
