New Guy With XL Egg and Table
Ok so here's my back story... I've wanted a BGE for years and years, but I had a great charcoal grill and a vertical smoker that were still in good condition. Finally this was the year that my trusty old reliable grill rusted to the point of no return. I turned 35 at the end of April, and my wife went and got me the XL and a bunch of other gadgets to go with it for my birthday. She's a real keeper
It took a few days to figure out the direction I wanted to go with my table, and using some of the very basic measurements from this site and incorporating my own wants into the design, here is what I came up with. It is considerably larger than the cypress Egg table, mine comes in at 36"x60". I'm still trying to figure out a way to incorporate the umbrella mount onto the table, I need to find some hooks for my tools, and I have to get a bottle opener with a catch can, but for the most part it's done.
Here is the basic framing, treated pine and cedar. The wheels are a little puny, they've been replaced already
I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.
