Something like this:
If Canary can do it you can too!

    Many of us have wheels on the table so it can be moved.  Egg surrounded by table top is much safer when moving.

    In cooking, often we implement steps for which we have no explanations other than ‘that’s what everybody else does’ or ‘that’s what I have been told.’  Dare to think for yourself.

    No comment about table design, but whomever owns the pictured open cut table should consider air gapping the BGE in addition to the paver.  Too many threads of the wood below the paver eventually firing up or losing its structural integrity and dumping the fired up BGE on a wooden deck.  FWIW-
