Cypress Table

My brother and father-in-law were playing around in the country this past weekend and made me a table which came out great.

Going to add hooks and what not soon.  Any good ways to utilize the space under the self?

    I know some have installed rubbermaid-like plastic bins to act as drawers that are water-tight.

    Also under the egg all I have is a piece of tile is that enough to prevent the shelf from burning or is it best to have something thicker like a stepping stone?

    Thanks for the storage idea too - going to add that to the list.

    You'll burn your shelf.  You need an air gap - if you have the little green feet, those work, or a nest, or something.  That's preferable to the egg sitting directly on a thicker stone, which can get just as hot (but take longer to get there).

    The table looks good. 

    Do they still offer the feet? I bought a large BGE with the small table a month ago and my dealer sits all of his eggs on two of the small cement blocks. 

    I don't really care for the look. but I know something has to be there to keep it off of the wood.
