@Kyrstie_Mandarin - to be honest, have NOT cooked on the Eggs at all over the last few weeks! TOOO busy working trying to PAY them off! hah! LOL! So to ansser your question, I paid a pretty penny to install ALUMINUN plates about 1/2 thick that the stands sit on! It has significanlty reduced the heat transfer but it still gets hot!
TO ALL A VENDOR TIP/SUGGESTION: With regards to possible table fires; I was concerned for the "circled" edges of the BGE touching the sides of the Cedar Table Top, after viewing one persons table burning on the Fourm “Yikes”, it prompted me to research, to find and to call this company called Gladiator Glove Works – they are located on the web at http://www.gladiatorglove.com/default.asp - CHECK out some of my pics on how I did utilized the product!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
This is their info on the product I got to wrap around the inside top edge of my Egg Table Top holes and other possible high heat contact areas:

@Cazzy – I was waiting to see YOUR comments! Thank YOU! You know - wanting to emulate somebody is THE highest form of Flattery! And I truly liked/loved your concept of a table/Stand! It really suited ME best from all the others! Hope you noticed, I made sure you were given PROPS in my initial Forum post! Wanted folks to know it was your concept, your stand and table!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Back in May, June and October 2013, we had exchanged a few messages via the Forum that I was interested in your table and that I was looking to build one like it! I’ve showed off your table to MANY of my friends as well as Store vendors while making purchases, as they were curious of what I was building, NOT many people are aware of the BGE – NOW they are, though; BUT I am SO glad to hear you like mine WITH the different “spins” I built on it! SO while it is “Cazzy-esque” as Eggcelsior so eloquently put it, it was made in high regard and will ALWAYS be treated as such BUT with Spins!
Sorry to hear about the storing of your unit while you wait for a new house to be built! Congrats to your wife for selecting for AVP! Awesome! Selling your table – someone will enjoy it! Another table build? XXL placed in it? J
