Lowe's gift cards = new egg table (pics)

Finally finished my table. I bought everything from Lowes except the granite and I got a pretty good deal on it. Just some 2x4's, a 1x10x8, a 1x6x10, a sheet of 1/4" birch plywood, and a sheet of 3/8" pine plywood for shelves. Added some walnut stain, some spar varnish and the next thing you know...got me a table! Also bought and used a kreg jig for the first time and that thing is nice. Highly recommend getting one if you like building things with wood.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Thanks guys. Trying to figure out what I'm going to do for a cover now. I'm hoping the wife can make one. If all else fails, I think a tarp will serve the purpose. Anyone use a tarp?

    Great looking table. I use a 4-wheeler cover for my table, fits perfectly and cheap.

    No. Probably should have I guess. I guess I still can.

    Awesome! Looks easy enough for a beginner. Do you have any plans or a specific material list that you could share? Also, what size egg is that? I want to make a table very similar to this for my large. Thanks and great job..

    Nice looking table. I might recommend the table nest though. Even with the table nest I cracked the tile below my egg cooking a round of pizzas. With the egg on the ceramic feet right on the marble, it may get a little too hot and scorch your wood below. Just a thought!

    I thought this was going to be a lot easier than it turned out to be but I'm a perfectionist so who knows. The frame was 66"wide, 27" deep and 31" tall. I think I used 8 2x4's , and I actually bought two sheets of each of the ply woods listed but I have quite a bit left over. Also used 2 of the 1x6x8's. I think that's about it. It was the first drawer I ever built and it seemed to take the longest. It's a large egg. If you want the egg to sit deeper into the table than mine does I would add about an inch and a half to the depth of the frame due to hinge clearance. My hinge opens down into the cutout made for it but without the ceramic feet the hinge didn't have the needed clearance.

    I cooked some burgers for my first cook with the egg in the table. 450 degrees for about 20 minutes and the granite wasn't even the slightest bit warm. I will continue to monitor it but I just don't see it being a problem at all due to the 3/4 inch air gap between the egg and the granite. Thanks.

    After another longer cook that started at 600 and then wentdown to 400, it's seems you are right. No damage is done but the feet didn't prevent the stone from getting hot. I think I'm going to get a friend to cut my old egg nest down to where its only 1.5 to 2 inches tall and use it instead of the feet. Thanks again.
