New to the family. Here is my table I made.

90.00 worth of cedar and 17 hours. And a lot of sawdust boogers. I can't wait to master the egg. Just wanted to say hi from south Florida

    Welcome, nice table - with or without the opener! Enjoy your cooks. 

    Paver is good idea, better idea is to introduce an air gap between the paver and egg bottom. Depending how you clean your egg, you may find the air gap lets the ash pan fit under the egg making it easier to rake out the ash. If you vacuum, not an issue.

    What would you use to create the gap between the egg and paver?

  • Will it get that hot causing a need to have a gap of air between the egg and paver?
    I'm working now but on way home I will stop and get a bottle opener and a new utensil set. I also want to put some hooks to hang the utensils and a towel rack on the side.

    Use a table nest.  I got one for my large and it was about $25.  Give about 2" air gap.  Really gives me peace of mind with a wooden table on a wooden deck.

    I'm pretty sure it would take me longer than 17hrs to build that. Looks very nice!

  • thanks for the warm welcome all.  I guess my girlfriend and I are doing salmon on Saturday.  I usually take pics so stay tuned.

  • I would get a little air gap between the paver/marble  and the egg too.  I have 3 green ceramic wedges that you position in a triangle for my egg to sit on.  Got them from my green egg dealer.
  • I do like the egg centered. Wish I had made my table like that wth the egg centered. Now you just need some hooks so you can hang one or two things. I would not stick a bottle opener on it. When was the last time you had to use a bottle opener to open a beer? Most have a twist off cap so I doubt if you would get a lot of use out of it.

    There are still a lot of bottled beers that require a bottle open. Surprising as it sounds.

  • Sawdust boogers! LOL!
  • Great table! I loved how the first comment was about having a bottle opener. That did cross my mind as well.

    why the need for air gap? over the years I've seen some posts about wood charring beneath the paver w/o air gap, here's one:

  • Looks great. Can't wait to build one in the spring.
  • I just picked up a used large BGE for 250.00 with a plate setter. I might sell this table and build a dual set up. I forgot I left an ad on Craig's list about wanting one and he called. What a deal.

  • Fantastic design and choice of materials.  May I ask what is the distance between the first and second levels?  I am in the process of building my table and comparing various designs to BGE's suggested measurement of 15 inches.  Many thanks.
