Cypress Table - Wood From an Old Cistern

Just getting around to posting this.  Built the table in January 2014. Mortise by hand... never again!  Borrowed a Craig Jig so no screws would show.  I want to add a drawer or something to put things in, also need a place to put hot items on.  The build took a couple of weeks working in the evenings but I really enjoyed it.

    Beautiful table!  Love the picture of your little guy standing in the hole.  I keep trying to get one of my little guy in my egg cart, but he runs every time I bust out the camera.

    Great looking table. Do you have anything under the egg to deflect the heat off the table? Paver or something similar?

    Thanks! No, don't need anything with the BGE Table Nest.  It lifts the egg 2 3/8" off the table which is way better than any stone.  They are roughly $30.

    Nicely done! I imagine many man hours went into this. Great payoff though.

    Very nice looking table. I would keep an eye out for how much heat is coming from the bottom of the egg. You may want to put a stone under it just to keep your table finish from getting screwed up.

    The air space below the egg created by the table nest is sufficient and should insulate better than a stone.

    I would suggest that you keep an eye on how hot your table top gets around the cutout for the egg. Looks like a pretty tight fit and it would be a shame for this to happen...

    Lit's table. Similar spacing.

    Sorry! I meant in addition to the nest. Just put you hand under there after she's been working for a while and see how hot it gets. If you don't need it ya don't need it.

    Yes It is draw bore. I couldn't believe how strong the joints came out.

    Wow!!! I would be devastated. That could easily burn down a house.

  • Update!  After two years of use I decided to modify my egg table.  I added the drawer and cabinet.  Can't wait to cook again. (Old metal sign in bottom of drawer song can put hot things in it)
