Well, the plans are drawn up the 21in circle has been cut now on to the next phase. The Top will be is 32" x 65" Stained and sealed is in the plan also. All Cedar and an attached Pergola! Yes, that is in the plan! :woohoo:
I have heard all kinds of opinions on height of Table (top) and the height to the Felt line. Is 32" really the most optimal? I am 6'2" and this is being built for me. More pics soon! Wish me luck! B)

    i am 6'5" and made mine 37" is great for me and too tall for everyone else, which does not bother me in the least!

    I might be too late for replying but I say as a rule that you build for the height your comfortable at. I also say that too tall is worse than too short because of the physical action of reaching out then lifting the lid or maneuvering food in and out or setup changes and cleaning...all can be a strain if the user is not positioned comfortably near and over the ceramic cooker. Safety, comfort... then looks. When you get all three nailed down in that order your going to walk out to your cooker and use it often. Post a pic when your cedar table is done. Have fun!

  • I am the same height as you and I had to add wheels to my table to increase the height so it felt like working at a countertop in the house and the egg is the right height aswell. 35"-36" is comfortable for me, I make alot of pizzas, I would imagine the table looks great thou.
