My new table

Nobody around here has ever even heard of a ceramic cooker let alone a Big Green Egg. So I wanted to be the first and damned if I'm going to have a bought BGE Nest holder. So I made a table. All Western Red Cedar with a Stainless Steel Top and SS reflector under the firebrick.

Now I haven't done ANY woodworking in 20+ years so I am pretty happy with the results.

  • Very nice

    Of course some will say you need a bottle opener B)

    Someone with a SS table warned against leaving a grid or the daisy wheel on top of the table for any length of time - rust marks.

    Looks like you have a low and slow going by the opening on the bottom vent and wispy smoke.

    Nice work and thanks for sharing.

    Very nice table!
    Attention to detail and function you just cannot buy from the store. Handcrafted is got a heirloom table.

    Nice job!
  • How did you cut and break the stainless? Did you have it made? Really nice.
  • I had a friend make the SS top for me. The Top was waterjet cut and welded to fit over a 3/4" ply sheet.
  • I had a bunch more pix to show but forgot to add them. The basic design was from Naked Whiz but had to modify it to accommodate the local building materials and my own desires.

    It's all Western Red Cedar except the S.S. covered Plywood Top. The custom S.S. box on the side holds my pizza stone, grill and Plate setter. The handle is Stainless welded and buffed. All tools except the Grill lifter are handmade by myself as well. The handles suck and will be replaced with Arbutus or driftwood as I get the time.

    Mobility is an issue as it's pretty dang heavy. I think next Spring I'll add casters to the handle end.

    Just picked up the custom Cover yesterday and can't wait till it cools off to try it out.
