Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Where'd the tables go?

First off, Happy Fathers Day to all you cool dudes...

Well fellas, one leg of my stand for my cooker decided to get tired and lay down on the job. Luckily, it did no damage, just collapsed. My DH says it was from the dog visiting it one too many times. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway, we are putting plans together to start building a wooden one. :woohoo: I can't find the old plans that were available as that is a good place to start, and we can "build" on those... yep, pun intended!

So if anyone knows of where I can find those plans, I sure would appreciate it... (sorry, there is no kissy face available and that is what I want right now!)

Thanks in advance, as we are going to be running off to buy supplies asap!

    Are you saying that your dog turned the tables on you?

    I guess you could put it that way. :laugh:

    This ole thing came with a metal cart. It was rusty but still had some chrome when we got it. It is now solid brown/red with an unrepairable broken leg. The casters have not turned nor swiveled in a way long time.

    I found the table photos, and the plans. I have a set of the plans here somewhere, but yah know how it goes when you want something you saved. It'll show up in a week or so. Just when we don't need them anymore.

    How have drawers worked for those few who have put them in their table? Did you have problems with the wood swelling and shrinking, causing the drawer to stick? I figure castor style drawer tracks will just rust away like that leg. :blink:

    Well, time to go take a look see at what lumber we can use that we already have, and make plans for more new stuff and a shopping trip.

    I wonder if we will give up on the big ideas that we have and are mulling around!

    Bonnie,
    I am a new egger but a longtime woodworker. I am in the process of building a custom table for my egg. I am putting two drawers in the top. They are going to have 20" full extension ball bearing slides. There should be little problem with rust. One a year they will get pulled out, sprayed with WD40, then a light coating of light oil put on them.

    Yes group, I know. No pictures, it did not happen. They will come later.

  • This is not as good as TNW, but it's from the BGE website - http://www.biggreenegg.com/pdf/tableplansLarge.pdf

    this is what my basic frame looked like. It's mahogany, 2x4 legs, 2x4's below the Egg and 1x4 (decking) everywhere else.

    Yhe thing that really helped me was TNW photo documentary of the process:
