This was my first real carpentry project, and I had a blast. Like many others I used the Naked Whiz's plans. I definitely had a few "Oh S***" moments, but was able to make it work. I built the table, then got the egg at the end of March. Now I have cooked at least 3 times per week on it (and a few 4 and 5 days/wk). I also have plans for the replacement table already. It's nothing compared to the beautiful tables I have seen on here, but it sure was a lot of fun!
