Large Egg Egg table

edited March 2018 in EGG Table Forum
This is my second build of anything and I’m pretty proud of it. My girl got me a large egg for Christmas (WHAT A GIFT! ) and I decided that such an incredible feat of human engineering needed something a little more than the best to call a home. Built this table over a few weekends in Feb.
had to use Pine to save cost but hoping that diligent maintenance will help it last. Table top is attached using z-clips to allow for movement. All drawers are soft close.  Housing charcoal in homer buckets in the cabinets, top right drawer for utensils/gloves etc (I’ll put all non metal in 1 large flat Tupperware.) bottom right drawer is actually 1 large drawer, despite the 2 handles for looks will be for a cooler. Center drawer is for plate setter and extra grates/pizza stone.

    Watch those bricks on the wood. Can get hot enough to burn the wood under them

     Very nice table, and welcome to the madness. Guard your wallet, this place will spend your money faster than you can count it.

    I’m always amazed at some of the handiwork by folks on this board. That table looks incredible.

  • Great looking table. I would suggest you get an air gap between the bricks and egg. I had an egg sitting directly on a three and a half inch paver stone and it scorched the wood underneath.

    Welcome.  You've got a keeper if she bought you and egg.  Poor lady doesn't know what she started!  Nice job on the table - enjoy.
