After ten years loving my Egg, I decided to upgrade its home.
Table is white oak, no finish since I like the silver. Top is a repurposed granite top from our recent home renovation.
To support the 180lb egg, I used triple mortise and tenon on that side with two large cross pieces, but pocket screws elsewhere did fine. The setback from the stretchers was a nice detail. Designed everything in Sketchup – such a help. Raised two of the legs to add some colorful casters for those few times I may want to move it. Cabinets colored with exterior Benjamin Moore to match the Egg (got pretty close).
Cabinet was designed to hold what I use – charcoal, BBQ Guru, wood chunks, matches…
Wife loves it.
