I am man. I build table.

Nothing overly special here but I am generally only moderately handy so please allow me to show off my project. I also figured someone might benefit from the few tweaks I made. I borrowed heavily from this plan:,

using some wisdom from The Naked Whiz:


I changed the support system for the fire bricks from that in the plans from on the Naked Whiz's site as I was concerned it might be inadequate to bear the full load of a large egg. Instead of only supporting the edges, I added two cross-braces that stradle the middle of the firebricks as shown below:


Now I just sit, salivate, and await the arrival of the large BGE ... tomorrow. :cheer:

    I bought my cedar at The Home Depot. They didn't look like much, but once the table was made, they looked just fine.
  • I am planning to build my own table this weekend or next, and I plan to use basically the exact same design. It's a modification of the Naked Whiz table based on an another aricle on the Naked Whiz site on fire safety recomendations. Debating whether to use Cypress, knotty Cedar, or knotless Cedar. Yours looks great!
