Almost finished my nest for my Xl Egg!!
I was encouraged by the fantastic tables on this site so I set out to build a nest for my XL egg. It started out as a bakers table that was left outside at a metal junkyard for years. I took of the butchers block, turned it upside down and refinished it with boat varnish (so I can cut on it) and then used the wood from the egg cut-out to make the drawers. The handles are bamboo kitchen utensils from the dollar store that I painted using boat pain. I have put everything that I can think of into it. If you have any ideas for things I missed let me know. So far it has an LED light, bottle opener, Ipod Dock, speakers, an umbrella, a portable battery pack to power it, a 120 volt outlet, a fan, an electric food heater and some sliding storage. The thing weighs a ton so I have had some custom casters made but I need to find a mobile welder to get them on. I was thinking about adding a swing arm that could hold an extra small egg but I can't seem to figure out how it can attach it to the table and have it strong enough to hold the egg. Maybe a round metal holder that the egg could sit in attached to a metal articlualting arm? Anyway here are some pictures of my nest (as you can see the first time I used it I forgot to put in the charcoal plate - rookie mistake but boy did it get hot!)
