Hi all, this is my first post to this forum.  I have been lurking for a while and have gotten some great info from this site.  I picked up a Large BGE earlier this winter, and just recently got the table finished.  My dad made the table out of cedar, and my brother made the top out of 304 series food grade stainless steel.  He used his waterjet machine to cut the hole, so it is a perfect fit.

The Egg itself was great, but having a nice work area makes it that much better.

I hope to be able to contribute here and pick up more great ways to use my Egg.

    Very Nice Job on the table. Gives me some ideas for mine in the making. Sounds like you got a great brother for that top. All my siblings contribute is eating all my food and drinking all my wine and leaves me with a mess.

    Love the stainless top.  First one I've seen like that with the combo of wood and stainless.  Nice.

  • erick, I got them from  Just search for stainless bottle opener and catch.
  • Very nice stainless top.  Did you have it fabricated for your table?
  • Nice.  Welcome !

  • What plans did you use and what would you estimate the total cost to be? I am trying to decide if it is time to spring for a table and not sure what kind of investment I would be making. I have a friend that will probably build it for me if I supply all the materials.
  • Very nice table.  I like the stainless approach.

    Very nice table!!
  • Thanks for all the nice comments guys!  I am extremely happy with the table. 

    Gnorwoodjr, the wood, hardware and casters cost ~$175 from Lowe's.  The metal for the top was around $150 I think for a 4'x8' sheet.  That doesn't include whatever the cost would be for the waterjet work and braking the edges and welding the corners.

    Yeah, that is absolutely beautiful. I am incredibly jealous (and a bad speller). What does that beauty weigh?
  • ribnrun; I'd imagine altogether with the Egg it weighs somewhere around 300lbs or so.  That is just a guess though.
