Table something different

I wanted something a little more compact than most of the designs that I saw posted. Here is a prototype with fold down tables.

  • Hey Cat Man -

    Are those Porcelain tiles on the bottom of the egg? I saw some Porcelain tiles at Home Depot that were fired at 2200 degrees and won't get too hot. When I asked the sales guy...he said that a paver and the porcelain would work great.

    Please let me know how it works. BTW - cool table! I've put together a cedar table that is a little different too.

    Thanks -

  • Not porcelain, just concrete pavers. 12" square about 2" thick.

    Nice setup ;)

    Just two observations...Put your little green feet under that egg. Being sure to have one in the back directly under the hinge. The second thing is about the wheels. The diameter of those are kinda asking for trouble. They can get caught on really small stuff. Think BIG when buying casters for those tables.
  • I agree with Minnesoooota (was it really 10 below yesterday?). I am a classic example of using the small feet. Mine went flat in a month and when I rebuilt my table, I just said it is never moving again, so left out the feet.
  • I didn't want wheels at all but the wife said it had to move. They are suppose to hold the weight but I may need to change them out.

    Why the green feet under the egg?
  • Using the ceramic feet will lift the egg an inch or so off the pavers and give it some airflow. This helps cool and let the heat have somewhere to go...besides down and into the pavers. Those things can get hot and in several cases - burn the table or start a fire.

    If I missed something guys - jump in.

    Again...from my last post - cool table.

  • Nice table.
    Like others say...use the green feet that came with your egg.
  • Very nice table

    Yup....stops the heat transfer. Which can be quite significant in long cooks.

    It sure cooled off in a hurry this year. I went from lots of late season golfing to running my snow blower in a couple weeks. Strange year

    Cat Man, really cool table, unique, consider submitting it to the Nakedwhiz website in his photogallery of egg tables, if interested go to the website & follow the instructions, it will take a week or two but it will get in there. Nice job, Marc

  • I may do that. I was wondering how they got those pictures posted on the site.

    Thanks,
  • Changed my screen name if anyone was wondering what happened. Wife said she didn't like "Cat Man". I work for Caterpillar so I thought it was all right.

  • People might think I was just slow.
  • I was actually outside once when my slate broke because of the heat transfer without the feet. Quite an explosion. You should definitely use the feet.
  • Glad to see Cat has recovered from the recession, especially since I bought a bunch of CAT at $32 in Feb.
  • I have been buying all year. Not sure how high it will go. Setting around $60. now and things haven't even started to take off yet.
