Brand New Egg Table Using Cinder Blocks

Hey everyone, I finally made the plunge and designed/built my own Egg table (I actually refer to it as the "Egg Castle"). I am a big fan of cinder blocks so I used them as the main construction material. The build was fairly quick (4 hours) and really cheap (less than $150). I am very excited to show off my creation, so check it out! 

Build description is on my website:


An ulterior motive for this post is an idea I have for my website. I would really love to create a gallery of Egg tables so that y'all can show off your Egg and maybe inspire others. If you have some pictures you would like to share please let me know via email! biggreeneggic@gmail.com

Thanks everyone!

    Very cool...

    did you fill the block in with something or just figure the weight will keep everything in place?

    Looks good and solid.

  • @hapster:

    I didn't fill the blocks with anything because I didn't want the structure to be permanent. So if I need, I can disassemble it. 

    The weight of the blocks + counters are more than enough to keep everything in place.

    It's sitting on tamped down paver base & paver sand. I couldn't sit it on my patio, because the patio is so unlevel that the blocks wouldn't have laid flat. 

    edit* And I didn't want to pour a concrete foundation.

  • Also, a reminder to all you Eggheads to send me pictures of your tables! So far I only have 1 pic (a set of BEAUTIFUL tables!), but it's not enough for a gallery. Hit me up!
