Since I was able to get tons of ideas and inspiration for those of you on this site, I thought I'd put mine on and hopefully be able to do the same in return for someone else. This new home for my Large Egg is many years coming. I have owned my Egg for about 8 years and have always wanted to have a permanent home for it. I had a simple Whiz Style table since I got the egg so I have had plenty of time to determine what I wanted in a cabinet. The biggest things I wanted were charcoal storage, shelves for my plate setter, grates, extensions etc., and a drawer for all of my tools, all of it weatherproof. After pouring our patio last fall, I had all winter to plan how I wanted to lay it out. I built my patio furniture first and was glad I did. By the time I got to my Egg cabinet, my woodworking skills were polished up and I'm really happy how it turned out. The granite was a remnant piece I picked up for $200. I had to cut it myself and managed to crack it around the cutout. I got it epoxied back together and it only shows behind the hinge so I'm not too broke up about it. As you can see from the "production pics" I had help from my dad and my son. Fortunately dad has all the "good tools" and the space to build indoors. The 4x4's I used were all recycled from shipping pallets. I used cedar carsiding for the cabinet exterior and 1x4's and 1x3's for the doors and trim. Since I took these photos I added handles and magnetic latches to all of the doors. Having 6 feet of working space is AWESOME! Especially for those summer nights when I'm doing pizzas for a large group of friends. I can cook and serve all on the same surface. Overall, I'm very proud of my cabinet and I'm glad I took plenty of time to design and build it just how I wanted it.
