I took a photo (Eggfest) of the transportation crate you had made for your small egg. Found someone to make it for me. Would it be possible for you to send me the dimensions of yours? In particular what is the height between the top and bottom?[p]Thanks!!!!

    Hi Lisa,
    This carrier is for the 'small'. It's made from 3/4" plywood and 2X4's. The outside dimension is 20" X 20", the hole diameter is 15", and the 2X4's are 9 & 1/2" in length, which makes the overall height 11".[p]Egg_Transporter.jpg

  • egret,
    Thanks so much for the dimensions. We can get started now![p]Lisa

    One thing I would do different would be to make the top piece of plywood about 15" X 21" and put a small cutout on the ends of the 21" side for handles (one on each end). It's a little awkward when two people try to pick this thing up and move it.

  • egret,
    I can see how that would be helpful. Thanks for the tip! We have started construction - will post the finished product. We work slow so it may be a while!!!

    don't you mean something else than what you said? Afterall the original you said was 20 x 20 with a 15" hole and now you say the top is 15 x 21. "Measure twice cut once"

    And oh yes...also a 17" BlackStone gas fired griddle!

    Thank you, Ron, for keeping me honest here. You're right, of course, the preferred dimension of the top piece should be 20" X 26".....
