I built the large green egg cart for a buddy. The dimensions are 73”L x 32”W x 34” T. The top and shelf are 1×4 cypress and the frame is pressure treated southern yellow pine. The stone surfaces are 1/2”T x 24” square tile. The finish is urethane and furniture wax.

The construction is laminated legs with through mortise and tenons for the apron and shelf. All other jointers are pocket holes.

It was a fun build that took about 10 hrs and is based off several designs I found on the site. Another buddy saw it and wants one also. So off to the shop for round two.

Thanks for looking comments good or bad are welcome.

Well done, I have thought about getting an egg. Pretty impressive cookers. Nice work.

Real nice, way nicer than mine is about to turn out (half done, based on the grilldome table plans with a slight dimensional tweak so it fits through the door). I like the pocket holes and “mock mortise and tenon” idea much better than my straight screwed together 4×4’s. But on the other hand, I want this pile of wood to just get out of the garage and help cook my meat already.

Thanks Ken, most of my coworkers have them here in the Tampa Bay Area because you buy once instead of 4 times because they rust out pretty quickly. The green egg is ceramic so it does not rust.

Pottz not sure it’s that kind of party. Just kidding. Here in Florida it is easy to provide lubricant to every finish you put on a project as I’m sue you saw in the picture. The smoker is 140 lbs so I stood in its place to verify the table would hold. I am 270 lubricated ( drenched in sweat) and not a peep from the mortise and tenon while on it.

Thanks appreciate it. I just saw your table design/ build and really like how you can belly up to the table while cooking and like how the shelf slats run in contrast to the top. I have another one to build next so I may incorporate some of both our designs in it.

Hokjejz, thanks for the nice comments. Take a look at Marks table in his project (commented above) that is very useful design and will save your back then cooking. Stay motivated and keep going. Here’s a picture with the cooker installed.
